An OpenSCAD script to generate basic shapes to represent common bearing and stepper motor sizes used in RepRaps, in your designs.

I wanted to test a design for an extruder in software to see if things would fit. So I had a go at making modules for the things I would be using repeatedly and this basic script is the result.


include the script


and then call the predefined shapes when you need them.


The models are pretty basic and parametric so it should be pretty easy to add any others you might need.

OpenSCAD stepper, bearings, jhead and fans script

I had created some fan models (the basic shape with mounting holes) but didn't think to include them in this script.

Its a good idea, I'll put it on the todo list...

I also added a 688ZZ 8x16x5mm Bearing:

5mm tall (up the z axis),
16mm diameter,
8mm diameter center hole.

And some sample JHeads models too!!! (Since i see you have a shelf plate for a QUAD.)

I'm using these to put together and inspect, inspect, inspect.

You could load that quad up with 4 shades of black...

wait, are you adding those or do you want me to?

Its done, will update the current version.
