Y Axis Assembly Motor Holder

Hello

My question is related to Point 2 Step 21 Mounting Y-motor-holder.

I have attached the motor with the two screws and after that I tried to push the motor a little bit with my finder against the frame and it can be easily tilted to the frame. There is a small gap between the motor and the frame and I think the stiffness of the holder is not as good as it should be.

Is it supposed to be that "soft" in that position?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Daniel,

on the Y-axis the motor there should be no gap, can you please take a picture and also check the version of the y-motor-holder? (1. Introduction)

Thanks

Hello

I have the version A9 I think.

There is a little gap between the motor and the body and I can "wiggle" the motor with my fingers.

Attached you can find a short video what I mean:

Hi Daniel,

can you please check the are no small pieces of filament between the printed part and screws? It is possible the screws are not fully seated, which might be causing this "wiggle" (both on motor and the plate). Please also check the part is rectangular (the face of the printed part with motor should perpendicular to the plate).

Let me know ;)
