Your Z clamp fitted exactly the stock nema17 motor with the vertical alignment. Bravo !

To fit a damper, may you, please enlarge the cavity in Z by 8mm ? That would also fit others non-stock motors.
Thank you.

I will attempt to use this for a dual Z Lead crew by X symmetrizing it (for second Z stepper motor on right side) before printing.

Stepper motor gets very warm. Enclosing the motor may make it hot. Hot = bad for pla and stepper motor.

Can you consider cutting out sides of your part for ventilation?
Or, if stock motor has poor X,Y alignment, create shim part to fill "4-5mm gap" you speak of?

What do you mean by: "... was not in the middle"? Of what?


The Z Axis Lead Screw and the holder on top was not centered with the yellow holder. Removed the screws from yellow stock holder and there was a gap of 4-5mm from stepper to the vertical rail from printer.

Ah - so it was not aligned in the X or Y direction? So the stepper motor axle was not aligned with the lead screw nut in the z "carriage"?

You are right, they are not aligned. I just find out too, thanks

stepper motor - screw nut - Top holder , from Z axle not aligned on my printer with yellow holder.
