Do you need extra hardware for this?

No, just dampers.

Perfect thanks I will be printing this before my dampers come :D

Could you upload a .step format file for the project?

is this a damper in itself, or can I fit the motor dampers (metal+rubber) with the help of this?

It can fit dampers. This thing is needed in case, when build plate touches motor after installing dampers.

Which orientation is better on table for printing?

Put it like this. And turn supports on. Only from build plate.

Hi there, I like this design for my "press-fit" stepper gears and I am about to print it as soon as possible.
Thank you very much for sharing!

I am by the way checking the model and it seems a bit odd to use supports only from the build plate as there is a big ceiling overhang where the stepper goes. Could you really print that straight horizontal line over thin air without trouble?

If I understood correctly, it is a bridge, and should be printed without problems.

Yes it is indeed a bridge, I see what you mean. I printed it with a bit of support over there too to have a bit more quality and I have to say that it worked beautifully. I will add a make picture soon.

By the way, my dampers came with those small extra teeth next to the screw holes: I quickly sanded them away with my Dremel but it would be nice for future prints if you have time to update the model to include a small recess to fit them in.

Thanks a lot once again for this cool design!

Nice! Could you please send a link a picture of those dumpers with teeth?

Thank you, will try.

Very nice design I love it?

Any chance to have a version for the Ender 3 Pro, where it has a 4040 extrusion?

+1 for the Pro! :) pretty please! lol

No, unfortunatelly it will not fit.

Hi, my bad had a typo.

I know that this will not fit, but could you do a version to fit the Pro? Or share the obect file so I could edit it to fit the Pro?

Thank you

No problem, I've posted f3d file.

was this designed for the stepper motor with the press fit gear or the adjustable gear?

It was designed in such way, that mkotor stays in the same place, as with standard adapter. I have adjustable gear, but it should perfectly fit fixed.

would love to see a make of this before I start printing!
