This is so you can make a larger wheel that can navigate small stairs/steps ... maybe with your robot ... Ideally, each individual OmniWheel would have a motor but this is the affordable solution using one motor driven center gear.

You can snag a 50mm diameter OmniWheel with a 3mm hub diameter out of this for your robot too ... not even use the outer mounting plates.

All these parts are MakerBotable ...

Here's a Demo animation;

This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest ...

If you successfully make this with a 3D printer please send me the build-file and machine type so it can be uploaded here for others to use.
