We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
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.

So what's this mean?
We're sure stevecooley would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
