    Hi,

    I had a look at the assembly made in the Belt and Pinion_16 model, where a Mini V Gantry plate is used with the Nema 17 Motor mount. There seems to be very little space between the hole for the motor mount and the edge of the Mini V Gantry plate (about 1mm).

    It looks like there is not space to put any screw in there. Has anybody assembled such setup?

    Thanks! Sacha

    Hi @Mark Carew ,

    Thanks for highlighting that. I have uploaded the screenshot again. It is an example in the Belt and Pinion_16 model.

    Another one I found (and used in the Death Star build) is attached also. It seems the builder had to cut away some material from the plate. Not sure if this is how it supposed to be :)

    Thanks! Sacha

    It may not show in the model (may need to update it) but I believe I used 1mm shims to space the plates apart on the test build.
    Thanks for the feedback on this model
