Review Of Upgrade MM3 Z Motor Plates, By DM-Accessories.com

Its probably not news to MM3 owners that the stock motor plates (especially the Z motor plates) are a bit thin. I have known this issue since day 1 of assembling my MM3 so the first thing I did was attempt to support them. Unfortunately this had not helped much.

This has caused me all sorts of bed leveling woes. I heard that there where some 3rd party thicker plates available so i thought heck ill try them out. DM-Accessories.com has all of the motor plates for each axis and are also good for other projects you may be working on http://shop.dm-accessories.com/collections/mendelmax
The new plates are made from stainless steel and are much more ridged than the stock ones

They also have an extra mounting hole that I found nice as my stock plate had buckled a bit in the center

After installing I noticed a big difference in the rigidity and was able to level my bed. I don't think these plates will be bending anytime soon so my bed should stay level. YAY!!!!!
For the price I feel that this is a well worth it upgrade for my bot.
