I have lots of different generic motors, and I need them for a couple of projects that involve the Arduino. In order to make the motor less ugly and more capable of being screwed on to something, I made a parametric case, so that I could put in the parameters, and get a case for any of my motors. Then I realized that other people might need a motor case too, so I put it on Thingiverse under public domain. It also comes with 2 example motor case, for the motors shown in the pictures. Also, this is the 2nd parametric design I have made so don't laugh at it.
(It is not physically tested yet, although it has been theoretically tested)


To make a parametric design:

  1. Download DC_motor.png and Motor.scad
  2. DC_motor.png contains a picture to help explain what each of the parameters mean
  3. Plug in your parameters.
  4. Print it! (Or do whatever you want with it!)

Post any comments or suggestions.
