Congratulatios! a very good job!

Does the motor move in both directions? Thank you

Good question. Yes, it is bi-directional. The brushless motor and ESC was likely designed for RC cars, and reverse and forward work at the same velocity. This motor I used is likely very overpowered depending on the loads, so a smaller motor of the same diameter would suffice for a lighter rig. I used a very common motor, and one could always remix other motor mounts.

What are the specs for the drive belt and can you point me in the right direction in terms of where to buy? Thanks!

Yes, its a standard metric Belt – Search e-bay "GT2 300mm belt" - They are about $1.18 in 5-2019.


3M-300 or 3M-315 (GT2-3M x 300) or HTD3M

Search keywords like "GT2-3M Timing Belt 6mm wide 3mm pitch Round 2GT RepRap for Pulley 3D Printer CNC" or HTD3M
