Huxley upgrades - Nema14 to nema17 mount by Prenta Apr 13, 2013


Hi there!
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 :)
