Are you good at Google SketchUp?
« on: December 30, 2008, 11:10:02 PM »
If you are, I was wondering if you happen to have a model of solarbotics GM8 motor...?

If not, and you can make one, and it wouldn't take you much time or effort, I would really appreciate it.  ;D

Here are the specs (they're for the GM2 motor, because solarbotics does not have the dimension for the GM8. I hope they're the same  :-\)

Measurements are in mm

-Thank you in advanced  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D

am sorry I tried, but there is not enough dimensions in that pdf to make one

Im not making it because i cant be bothered, but that datasheet seems to have every concievable measurement that anybody would need so the other poster just hasnt tried either.....

why not make it yourself?

No, I am trying to make the model myself, but it's coming along very crude and doesn't exactly serve the purpose that I'd like it to...so I figured, if someone has a decent skill at using SketchUp, and they don't mind, why not ask?

I could make the gear box no problem, but the motor had no dimensions. I was trying to make it in SolidWorks, but I see what you are saying, if I just go by using the image I think I can do it.

By the way how accurate does this have to be? What is this for?

If it helps: here is a Solarbotics GM9 motor.

It just has to be recognizable really. It's just for a personal project that I'd like to have a model of because I don't know if I want to use the Solarbotics GM8 motor or a HiTec HS-311, I think I'm going to go with the servo however, for a lot of obvious reasons, but if you want to continue working on the model, it would be appreciated, but I don't need it as urgently per se.

I just leaned sketchup lst week; but here is the GM8 I made. Morked ok for me, maybe you can use it too.

looks good. Can you upload it to Google Warehouse, and then post up the link to the Google Warehouse page for the component. I want to upload it to my Robotics Parts Collection - http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/cldetails?mid=9f6353632a39809a54179885bd086c8a&prevstart=0

Thanks,
Eric

If you search for GM8 fro mthe 3d warehouse you'll find it.

Another trick you can do is search the part libraries for something that looks similar, then manually change the dimensions and tweak the looks.
