<p>What material are you printing this with?</p>

Printed on:
Printrbot Plus Metal
Result:
Printed perfectly at .2mm layer height, with supports. I accidentally used 30% infill so you could probably drive over the motor mount with a car and not break it. Motor mount fit too tightly for me, but that could be due to my printer's/filament's calibration.
Feedback:
When the printer is moving on the X axis I can see that there is no movement of the cables by the motor anymore. The motor mount fit VERY snug. It became a little stuck near the end and I had to force it with clamps. If I had to print it again I would shrink the mount slightly before printing, but that might be just for my printer. Normally I have copper RAM heatsinks on the top of my motor to help cool it. The only place I could put them with the motor mount installed was on the back of the motor, which meant I could only use 3 instead of 4. Hasn't seemed to make a difference, and the motor/extruder doesn't overheat.

<p>Just had my stepper motor wires break internally, right at the motor. Never had this problem with my other Printrbots, but then again they both had points near the extruder to anchor the cables. Printing this up now.</p>

Do you think this could be used to accommodate a thicker fan? The official Printrbot fan shroud can only take a 10mm fan. I always want more cooling. I'm printing this up next.
