…I’m making yet another gear drive!
I got tired of always having belts that are too long or too short, and motor mounts that are either bending or don’t fit well, so I figured it’s time to make my own parts!
The mount is basically the @solidgeek 3d printed mount with an extra hole. The gears are standard spur gears from McMaster.
It’s all printed in PLA for now. The gears and motor mount are actually very sturdy, if anything the motor mount is too stiff, and vibration might cause delamination. Final versions will be printed in PETG with 3mm steel rods. The wheel gear is weak and will need to be redesigned, probably with through-bolts.
I’ll add pictures of the printed parts once I have them assembled.
