These are three modified parts that I will be attempting to use to fit NEMA 23 motors into a Cherry Pi III printer.
Changes from the original are as follows:
NEMA 23 Stepper Mount
Moved motor inboard 10mm
Increased height of part to accommodate motor
Extended "foot" further because of increased height
Moved tool holes to fit new motor mount locations
Top Bracket with M5 Bearing Mount
Shortened mount path to bring bearing 3mm further inboard
Note: the M5 screw can remain the same length, the idler will must be moved.
Mini V Wheel Rod Carrier
Extended belt mount by 3mm to hopefully catch the belt when it's in a new location
I have successfully built a printer using these files. I can report that the tool access for the motor mounts is a little tight and will likely need to be drilled bigger for your needs. Otherwise, everything works great!
