3D Printing Motor Mounts

After testing the newly-arrived motor at Cambridge Hackspace, it was clear we needed a mount to keep the thing from skittering around the table every time we connected it.

Given the motor's commodity status in the DIY world, I was confident I could find one that I could 3D print on Thingiverse.

It did not disappoint.

This motor mount, above, in the lead image to this post, from Steve Cooley, looked really promising. 

The simple mount below also fit the bill. I downloaded the .stl file.
