This is a continuation of my 3D Printed Bearing Instructable. I needed a way to slowly rotate the bearing, here's how I did it.
I printed these part on an Objet 500 Connex printer. I printed them in Veroclear so I could see through all the parts.
I use McMaster Carr for most of my small parts. Especially if your quantities are small and you need a quick delivery time.96415K71 316 Stainless Steel Precision Ball, ...
If you cleaned the parts properly the nuts should slide into the nut pockets. If there's still support material in the nut pockets you'll have to remove it.
Place the outer race over the bevel gear and roll in the bearings.
Using the M2 X 3MM fasteners secure the inner race to the bevel gear.
Use the M1.6 X 3MM screws to secure the adapter bracket to the motor.
Press the drive gear onto the motor shaft. The gear should flush with the end of the shaft.
Pick any two adjacent nut pockets and fill them with the M2 nuts.
Use the M2 X 10MM fasteners to secure the motor adapter to the outer race of the bearing.
I tried a few different motor controllers for this project. I ended up using the Fingertech tinyESC as it was the smallest motor controller that I could find.
