In a quest to instantiate an analog of Pete Prodoehl's super cool instantiated analog of Wayne Gillis' Interociter laser light show, I needed some motor mounts for the canon DC motors I picked up at Halted Electronics. YOU, however, could be making a wheel-based robot and you just need a way to bolt your motor onto something. Hopefully this is a helpful thing for you. I've included the inventor fusion file (".f3d")

Pete's project page:

Mike Gould and Wayne Gillis on the Henry Ford blog:


Make sure your motor is 1" in diameter, print this thing out, stick the motor in, and then use either a 3mm nut and bolt or a zip tie to cinch the top tines closer so as to create a friction fit to hold the motor in place.

I need two of these. My motors are just a little under 1 " in diameter

This almost fits a motor my students use for their robotics program. We scaled it up by 1.06% and it was golden. Thanks for the assist.
