Custom parts and enclosures

3D printed Spinner

This is a 3D printed spinner one of the students created that was attached to one of the motors. It is activated when the PS2 controller X button is pressed.

Motor Connector - Single Piece

This is a 3D printed connector piece that we used to attach to the ends of the motors so we could easily connect dowels to them.

Motor Connector - 12 Pack

12 pack of the 3D printed connector piece that we used to attach to the ends of the motors. Use this if you want to print a lot of these for a class, otherwise use the Motor Connector - Single Piece .stl to print just 1.
