A project I'm working on required that I reduce the overall size of a sub-assembly. I've contemplated modeling and printing RC servo cases in the past, access to an Object printer presented an opportunity to experiment.

I'm using Hitec's HS-645MG servo. I've included my file set at the end of the instructable.

Step 1: Servo Case Modifications

Here's a few images of the original servo case next to the modified servo case. I've noted in the images the changes I've made.
<p>Good work and nice Instructable. Great pictures and step by step explanation.</p>
<p>Very good execution of the project, may I ask what software you used to model this servo casing?</p>
@hunter9t9, I used Pro/Engineer now called Creo. Would you like copies of the native files or step files? I realize STLs are not the best for modifying parts.
<p>would love to try my something with the native files, thank you </p>
<p>@hunter9t9, here you go. Keep me posted.</p>
<p>do you still have the original file from this servo so i can rework </p>
<p>Here's a STEP assembly. Looking forward to seeing your work.</p>
What format would you like them in? STEP, SAT, IGES, ...
<p>whatever is easist for you to send i have multple 3d design programs im very good at altering exsisting objects jut not very good at starting from scratch</p>
<p>ok thanks was worth a try</p>
No I am looking for a 3d printed 9g servo case like the one you did for this larger servo
whirl55, got it. I've haven't modeled any servos that small.
<p>As you can see from this instructable I fastened the smaller servo to the case I 3d printed.</p>
As I am not good enough at 3d modeling to make it myself
<p>i like the instructable and would like to know if you have worked with micro servos specifically 9g servos as i am trying to design a cut down version with a mounting stud on the back with another servo flipped to modify the instructable </p><p><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Nano-based-Microbot/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Nano-based...</a></p>
<p>whirl55, I designed a pan tilt system with 9g servos for ldevendorf, see her instructable, http://www.instructables.com/id/Become-Your-Own-3D-Printer/, is that what you have in mind?</p>
