Solved Safe to mod stepper drivers?


Active member
For my voron 2.4 build I decided to get some beefier heatsinks. (see image)
They would fit perfectly* if it weren't for the pins sticking up from the underside.
I can't see any use for them and would have no problem just cutting them off to fit the Heatsink (yea.. big letters for big heatsinks)

Is this a good idea? Are the post sticking up needed later in the build?

Oh.. just to be clear.. I would NOT cut the pins on the underside, they have to go on the octopus board....

*they are tapered so they have clearance to the pins.... except those sticking UP
I would cut them off anyway. You really don't need them up that high unless you were doing some external wiring. Cut them low.
