In this video, some person demonstrates a working 3d printed Brushless motor. It’s a pretty impressive video to watch, he sends the thing flying and claims it can handle 500W of power.
I am envisioning a direct drive motor that someone can print in a mix of PETG and nylon, similar in build to this guy’s motor, that can simply press fit (and clamp onto if necessary) onto a TB218 hangar, secured by bolting your flywheel onto the axle and into the direct drive teeth on the motor.
I’m willing to throw down $50 for parts to try this out… And if I have enough beer this weekend maybe I’ll have a proof of concept design drawn up by the end of the weekend.
Anyone experienced with making motors, feel free to chime in. What do you guys think? I’d want this to be an open project that we can share the files as a community if this thing works.
