Which motor mount do I have for the dual extruder upgrade?

Post by Spencer » Fri Jan 20, 2017 11:24 pm

Hey guys. I'm looking to get the dual extruder upgrade but I have no idea which motor mount I have/need. I have to get the same type of motor mount as I already have, right? Can someone please point out the motor mount point in my picture so I can order the correct one? I tried googling "motor mount" to find a picture but different things pop up. I bought my Makergear M2 off of Amazon back in February of 2016. It's a V4 Rev D. Thanks! Here's the picture. http://imgur.com/gqfs8cN

The dual comes with its own motor mount, if you are upgrading to dual, you do not need to buy anything except the dual upgrade.

There's two options when I try to buy an upgrade. Plastic and metal. Just not sure which one to buy.
