Customizable Wheel for 28BYJ-48 stepper motor

Creation quality: 5.0/5 (1 vote)
Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

I tweaked MarkBenson's design and took a stab at creating my first Customizer.

Use the Customizer to change wheel diameter, remove the spokes (customize wheel in Tinkercad!), add text, create a test-fit piece, or tweak the tolerances for a better fit.

Use a common O-ring for traction.

3D printing settings

If your printer isn't calibrated (feed rate, etc.), your hub cut-out may need to be enlarged. My printer, for example, needed to add about 0.5 mm to cutouts before I calibrated it. See for calibration information.

I've learned to save some material (and time) by printing out test pieces first.

You can use a 3mm set screw if needed. You may need to tap it.

Prints without support. I would use 100% fill for strength around the hub.

For the 60mm version, I used a 1-7/8" ID x 1/8" O-ring from McMaster-Carr:
