    hey guys,

    While I'm waiting on my parts to arrive i thought i might as well make a sketchup model of the sim thats in my head so i can make an accurate set of plans to build from (completely out of character.. i'm more of a cut twenty, measure none kind of guy).. found numerous off the shelf items in 3d warehouse and plonked em all over the floor of my model, similar to what my shed looks like at the moment

    before i go and make a model of the motion dynamics motor off the 2d cad files on their website id see if anyone else has already done that to save some time

    specifically this one https://www.motiondynamics.com.au/1...ve-geared-motor-200w-21-256-rpm-7.5-45nm.html

    cheers
    Andrew

    awesome cheers!..

    searched high and low with every keyword I could think of.. (not solidworks.. haha)

    I've just converted the model to a sketchup file. I'ts not a free plugin (used the 30 day trial) maybe you could add it to the other link?

    i'll mod it to the motion dynamics one and upload that when done

    its so close its not worth making another for my purposes. sketchup doesnt have the resolution needed.

    i'll just make sure i use the schematic on motion dynamics website when drilling holes.
    the motor itself is 30mm longer, but the gearbox is identical
