80mm Spindle Mount and Vacuum Assembly Openbuilds C-Beam

3D model description

This is a mount and vacuum assembly for an 80mm 1.5kw water cooled spindle I designed to throw into my C-beam build... It works pretty well, it's very bulky and strong with 8 bolt down points to the linear driving plate on the lead screw and 6 clamping screws to hold the spindle in place... There is also a two piece vacuum attachment option that mounts to the side...

This set-up will work on the stock C-Beam, however, I plan on rebuilding mine to add more rigidity by doubling up the linear motion assemblies on each axis - but that's in the future... This will do for now...

For extra strength and durability, I printed it in Poly Carbonate... But ABS should be able to handle it... Just print it solid if you can...

All most is M5 screws (same that come with the machine kit) only two screws where the vacuum nozzle attaches to the vacuum connector are M4... Sizes can vary, but the minimum length is 30mm for the M5s... and 10mm for the M4s... You will also need 6 M5 Tee-nuts that are used to better tighten the 6 screws between clamping the back mount and front mount together...

Just so you know, to safe space on the overall profile, some of the screw holes for mounting are in tricky locations (especially on the vacuum connector)... You're going to need a bit of patience tightening them down due to the fact that you don't have much turn before you have to reposition the bit on the screw head. I suggest using a low profile ratchet if you have one.

These guys do take a while to print... About 12-15 hours for the back mount... 8-9 hours for the front mount... and 6-7 hours for the vacuum assembly... This will take a weekend to print and assemble
