Do you used original solidworks files to make this? if yes can you share modified versions? I like your update for 8mm leadscrews, but I don't like you reversed X motor position, if you can share solodworks fille I just modify it for my needs

Hi, the original file is from Autodesk 123D (*.123dx). I quickly imported it in Fusion360 and changed the mounts for the motor position. You can now download the stl.
I don't know if i could export a fileformat in Fusion360, that you could import in Solidworks.

Any source from wich you maked stl file will be good, can you share this modified by you .123dx file?

Here is the original 123dx file. I can also export to iges, sat, smt, step.

This file contains your mounts for 8mm leadscrew?

Yes, that 123dx-file is the final version of the leadscrew mount with the motor in the front.
Some minutes ago i changed and uploaded a stl-file with a mount for the motor on the backside.

BTW, how about sharing idler files?


Did you printed those parts yourself? Is it possible to print it without supports?

Yes i printed it and i am using it. Support is necessary at least on the inside between the rods.

Thats great, and if you share the 123dx file with motor on back it will be double great ;)

As i quickly read, Solidworks should be able to import iges and step files. So here are the two files. Have fun with them! :-)

Excellent, I hate to think good job need to be done twice, thank you ;)
