I sat down after school and spent a few hours diddling around in Fusion 360, just fiddling around with different drive concepts. At school, we’re pretty heavily drilled to follow a design process which goes something like:
- Research / Evaluate existing solutions (aka what can you copy)
- Conceptually sketch your designs
I recently brought a pair of Jacobs, but there’s already a few things I don’t like about them, number one being how damn thing the urethane is, and number two being the fact that they literally don’t “FOC”. That’s the negatives; the coasting of 14 poles is something to die for, even in BLDC they’re incredibly silent and they have a really weird but seductively nice feel when accelerating.
So with that being said, I began carrying out Mr campells design process; i.e. stealing ideas from other hubs.
With a few of my own requirements, I matched the dimensions of ABEC Big Zigs: http://www.abec11.com/products/abec11/abec-11-83mm-bigzig-hd-centrax-hd-74a-77a And this is what I came up with. Ignore the textures haha.
