X-Axis Motor Mount Plate

Before tightening the nema17 motor onto the plate, please watch this video.

This is more of a pre-assembly than a fully contained sub-assembly. You're going to assemble this as shown in the drawing.

Make note of a couple of things:

  • The hole orientation at the top of the plate doesn't matter. I have mine to the left, but they can be to the right (as shown).
  • The bottom set of bolts are the long M5 bolts (55mm)
  • When you tighten the motor into place, do so in an X pattern. You want the face of the motor to be equally pressing against the plate.
  • Don't tighten down the v-wheel bolts. Just loosely thread on the nuts to keep everything together.
  • When you are done with the assembly, set it aside, you'll be bolting this to the next assembly build.
