Might work although I'd substitute metal pivots and lead screw.

It actually costs less if you don't have a 3D printer  :'(

how does that not fall over?!? seems like the weight of the stepper is way out there.   It needs a bigger base.

If you look at the model of the bast stl file, there are two holes for screws. This is meant to be fixed to something.
