This is the design I'd like to use. Kindly tell me what the two different sized Nema17 mounts mean. There is a 34mm and 54mm. What do these measurements represent? Standing them both on their "feet" in Cura, I can see that the 34mm version is taller, with the "top" portion being thinner.

Thank you.

The 34mm and 54mm are the distance between the mounting screw holes. The 34mm version has the screws "inside", so it can be mounted right at the edge of the frame. The 54mm version has the mounting screws on the outside and thus needs some extra space on both sides.

Ah, perfect. Now I see what these measurements are for. Thanks for the info.

One more question: What type of bed surface is on your printer?
