Snapmaker 2.0 DIY Rotary

I realize that most people don’t have or care about the Snapmaker 2.0, but thought a few folks might be interested in the ability to create your own rotary tool if they were thinking of getting a Snapmaker for their shop.

I had originally jumped on the Snapmaker kickstarter because of the CNC capabilities and the official, yet-to-be released rotary tool. There is a 3D Printed Y-Axis DIY rotary mod posted on Thingiverse, but I thought I could create my own using the Glowforge and other parts I ordered. Here is the result, version 2:
