    I discovered (when I broke it) that the mounting bracket for the fixed end of the Y drag chain was extremely weak - a 12mm x 15mm join between the upright portion and the flat plate the drag chain attaches to relies on adhesion between layers for strength.
    This redesign leaves off the section of plate with four slots in it (not used on the workbee) and changes the printing orientation so that layers wrap around the potentially weak corner.
    The Fusion 360 file is included on Thingiverse for anyone who wants to play with it.

    I was thinking along the lines of an easily removable dust cover that would allow plenty of airflow to cool the stepper drivers (and therefore some dust) and could be very quickly taken off to blow out dust and replaced. Ie: not a complete enclosure and hook/clip on rather than screwed in place.
