10/14/18 - I added files for a mount without a logo on it as well as a mirrored file for dual Z motors.
I designed a Z stepper mount because the spacers were too flimsy. She rides smooth now!
It allows you to mount the Z stepper down on the bottom extrusion instead of up in the air with the stock mount. It also keeps the stepper from being tilted by only being mounted on one side.
On top of that you can slide the stepper forward and backward to properly align it with the Z rod.
- Use a wood block or something to hold the X gantry up off the bed.
- Loosen the top half of the coupler so the Z rod can be lifted out.
- Move the stepper until you can freely twist the Z rod to the bottom of the coupler with no binding.
- Tighten mount in place.
Make sure you hold down on the stepper so it's flat on the printer's frame.

Use whatever settings you are comfortable with, these are what I used.
