Thank you!
but you need to re upload the 3 stl's, they are not all in the file download.
you can just click on edit thing in top right corner and then remove all stl's and reuplaod them.

Thanks for the tip. Done.

I printed this part and it is useless. You can simply put a sheet of paper folded in several layers.

For the Ender 3 Pro, the Tail must be about 20mm shorter. Cut it to length, done. Furthermore Your Model seems to have .5mm thickness (in Fusion 360). Way to thin for me to print - although he did print it with kinda Raft bringing it to 1mm in total.

Couldn't find a short tail option in the files, so just printed out the long tail and cut it across the bottom to shorten the length. Seems to work. Cheers!

Another option, I have some double sided foam tape {made by Panduit [normally used in electrical control panels]} that I stuck to the bottom of the motor to hold it in place while I made the spacer. The spacer now sits in my scrap box. You can get the tape from electrical suppliers. Hobby shops and building supply stores probably have something similar. It is about 1mm or 1/16 inch thick with a foam core [not carpet tape].

Added version with shorter "tail" - why didn't anyone tell me :P

in the zip File there is no version with shorter "tail"...

Huh, guess it's a bug on thingiverses side for files with the same name (thingiverse packs the zip files, creators have nothing to do with them).

Hi, do you have the shorter tail version hosted elsewhere?

I'm using the stock screws to hold mine on, but the part is a bit too short to allow them to tighten up. They end up bottoming in the screw holes on the motor before gripping the spacer.

I can't say i'm that surprised in such variations in the kit. I wonder if they also changed the mount itself as well... Anyway, I've added a version for long screws. Hope it works for you!

I realize i may have misunderstood which screw was the problem. When designing this part getting the distance right for the T-Nuts in the frame was the hardest part due to the counter sinking of the screw so my mind went right to that screw as the likely problem. Are you having trouble with the screw which holds the mount and motor together OR with the screws which hold the mount to the frame?
