wondering what the details on the gears are. I am considering making a drive shaft with a pin instead of the printed shaft.

Would you happen to have the .step file available anywhere for modification? I would be personally interested in modifying the motor mount especially.


I only have a original google sketch up file. You can find it here.

Alright, I'll try to make what I can with it. Thanks for what input you could give regardless!

By the way, if anyone doesn't have a brass rod, a wire clothes hanger works alright as well.

can you link the file of one gear? one gear failed dont want to print the hole set again :) its the medium one ;)
thanks a lot!


You can delete unwanted gears from the STL file. Just open it with your slicer and "ungroup" the gears. (At least Slic3r have that feature.)

Motor looks almost same but I cant be 100% sure if this motor will fit. There's no measurements for the motor fixing positions.

This one will fit. Fixing screw hole distance: 16 MM

Wonderful design! What CAD did you used?

I'm using google sketch up (make version) :).
