I think I actually got it, If so I will share. this works for the FlashForge Creator PRO

aRRRG,. After printing all this out, I discover it wont work for my printer! BUMMER. My Y axis stepper motor is lower than most and when it homes it hits the cable chain and wont let it home. Only option I have is to A, move it down and get longer belt, or move it up and get shorter belt. OR.... Have the cable chain go the opposite direction. Maybe you could do that for me? Design it to go backwards instead of coming out on the BACK side of X stepper, you could come out the FRONT and make the chain drop down and go to the back of printer? I'm not good at sketchup and have been tinkering with it trying to modify it to work but I just cant get it....

I printed everything out except for one piece that seems to be missing. The other end to connect the cable chain to! Do you have the other end of the cable chain that mounts to the case or something else?

I've been looking for a way to mount a fan to this motor without success. I'll print this out and try it today!

I changed the stepper driver to drv8825, adjusted the potentiometer and practically achieve anything extra engine temperature.
