This is a derivative of Chuck Murrays "Y-Axis Bracket for Solidoodle 2" (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:36446) . I printed his originally but found they had a bit too much propensity to twist on my Solidoodle 3. The originals had a small 'lip' that hugged the case edges ensuring they stayed straight - so I imported Chuck's into Sketchup and added the lips. As a result, the 'overkill' versions are no longer ambidextrous. Included is STL files for dual copies of either version.


Printed at 50% hexagonal infill with 4 perimeters.

You will need to readjust the y-axis belt tension when you install this bracket. I also replaced my M3x0.5 button head cap screw because the bracket is thicker than the stock piece - I used an M3 phillips head screw that I had available. The stock 8mm long cap screw will work but a 10mm cap screw will ensure full thread engagement.

These are great!! Mine started to break soo in 3d printing fashion i felt an upgrade was in store and these were perfect and saved me a bit of modeling time, thanks!!

Does anybody have a problem with the holes being to far towards the front of the printer, might just be the pulleys mine has on too.

Thanks for this, the beefy ones really do the trick (though I had to file the holes down a tiny bit). I appreciate your effort!

Just wanted to stop and leave a "thank you" for helping correct SD's inherent, terrible QA control. One of mine snapped this morning, came on here and found this and was able to print a replacement (and better one, at that).

Thanks for the comment! Glad that it was of value to you :)
