I found the parts page fantastically helpful; in fact, I started printing parts before I really understood how anything fit together. :v)

Once I got the bones in place, I started looking for doodads to make it better. Here’s how I’ve extended the parts list so far:

Tool mounts
I really don’t enjoy attaching the tool mount to the nut traps, so I built HicWic’s universal tool mount:

23.5_Universal_Mount_v5.stl

…and karltinsly’s tool adapters for the Dewalt 660 and a sharpie:

QR_660_v5.stl
660_upper_clamp.stl

QR_Pen_Holder.stl
kt_sharpie_cap.stl

…and toownky’s mount for the extruder from the Vicious shop:

TKY_MPCNC_UniversalMount_Mk8_slider.stl
TKY_MPCNC_UniversalMount_Mk8_bracket.stl
(although I have yet to figure out how to mount a parts-cooling fan for PLA.)

Cable management:
I put these replacement motor mounts on my short axis to mount a piece of 1x1x1/16” aluminum angle for the z-axis drag chain to ride on:

motor_mount_angleLEFT.stl
motor_mount_angleRIGHT.stl
(I tried printing some drag chain, and got really tired of digging support out, so I wimped out and ordered three meters from Amazon.)
