Summary

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")

Instructions

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.
