This mount works with most makerbot style extruders with a cooling fan. For maximizing the stability, there are two clamps that hold the extruder motor body and the fan.
The OpenScad source file is parametric, so you can adjust the dimensions to fit your extruder or X carriage.
You will need:
- Four M4x25mm screws
- Four M4 Nuts (nylon nut is recommended)
- Four M3x50mm screws
- Four M3 Nuts (nylon nut is recommended)
The attached stl file was designed for cheap chinese GEEETECH Mk8 extruder.

motor_size: width and height of your motor
