This mod is awesome. Bent was significant before and this kind of support is necessary for correct belt operation. Only thing to add I used M4 x 12mm screws instead of M4 x 8mm as being named here in description. Best regards!

I wouldn't use PLA for this bracket. Mine warped after a 12 hour print with a lot of moves for details. I'm reprinting it in Colorfabb XT CF-20, hopefully that fixes the issue.

Can you help me with dimensions of the metal part which the y axis stepper holds to (pulley distance from the stepper and how far )

Thanks for your work.
M3 x 40mm ? 40 mm, you sure ?


Yes mine are 40mm long.Scholle explains here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2701747

It will depend upon your damper and motor - they do seem to vary.

Ok i see now, thanks a lot !

Do you think this can work if I don't have a dampner? My motor bracket is slightly bent and wearing my belt... How would it attach to motor and what kind of HW do you think I need?


To fit this bracket you need to remove and replace 2 of the screws holding the motor together. For the damper, the replacement screws need to be slightly longer and for bolting the motor to the bracket directly would require screws that were even longer. It's not a problem - you'd just need to work out how long (I can't do this right now as I'm at work). I would recommend not doing this though and just buy the dampers - one of the better upgrades for your machine in my opinion. Buying them as a pack of 5 from China either direct or via Amazon is the cheapest way - I bought mine from Amazon for less than £10. I would also suggest trying to bend the bracket back so it's square (Chinese steel is fairly soft!) - best to remove it from the machine first to avoid damaging anything.
