Air 2 - Lowered & Flipped Z Motors
by wasta, published
These parts can be used to lower and flip the Z motors on the RepRap Air 2 by Mecano.
The download includes a right and left motor bracket, a dxf with additional holes/cuts for mounting/cable management, and an optional end-stop holder for the Z axis.
If you already have an Air 2 frame laser cut, you can use the printed bracket as a template to drill the 2 additional holes needed to attach the part.
This part is admittedly overbuilt, but it prints well.
Edited: Added a Slim, Short, and Low-Poly Versions of the part.
I have not printed or tested the short or slim versions, but they should work fine.
The "short" version of the bracket should probably only be used if the z smooth rod is cut long enough to reach the bottom smooth rod clamp. I worry it may not stay square otherwise?
Some kind of paper drilling template may also be needed for the "short" version if it is being added to an existing Air 2 frame.
