Huxley upgrades - Nema14 to nema17 mount
by Prenta, published
This is my first Thing ever.
It's originally for Huxley and gives the advantage to use nema17 motors on the original Z-axis nema14 motor mounts.
So basically it's a mount for the mount.
Notised that it works for the X-axle motor also!
The mount lifts the motor total of 12mm upwards and twists it 45 degrees so the M6 nuts on the frame are still in reach for maintenance. I added an 8mm version of the mount wich is probably better for the X-axle.
Only modification you have to do is:
-Drill the holes in the original nema14 mount to 4 millimeters.
30mm x M4 screws would be my choice.
10-15mm M3 screws to attach the nema17 motor
EDIT: So now I've printed it, and it works properly and does what it's supposed to do :) And it fits to X-axle too :)
