  • Ninco motor pod, for use in Parma Excaliber chassis

    I've had an Excaliber chassis sitting around for years.

    I finally decided to do something with it, and discovered I no longer have a Ninco motor pod. I tried 3D printing one, three times. I paid for one, got a free one because the first was so bad, then tried a different library that has a better printer, but none of them came out good enough to use, e.g.:

    So a few questions.
    If you've used this Parma chassis, how happy were you with the results?
    Has anyone tried using something other than a Ninco motor pod with it?
    Does anyone have a Ninco motor pod they'd be willing to sell or trade?

    Thanks,
    Ron

    These are not my design. I paid for the use of the file. Let me know if you want and I will print one or two. I ask that you cover postage only - I am in Canada.

      Looks like the ones you printed needed some support under the mounting legs. I made a bunch that looked like that until I decided not to be lazy anymore.
      It's a brass pan, so it will run fine once built. Make sure you solder/glue the bearings in the rear.

      Show it off once it's built!

        Ah, thanks for the sharing your experience with the rear bearings.

      Hi Peter. That is a very generous offer, thank you very much! I'm just outside of Chicago, can you estimate shipping to 60010?

      FYI. I purchased and downloaded an ACC Slot Works file from cults3d. The first library I tried had a Lulzbot Mini 1, with a .5mm nozzle size. Their first print was without supports and was terrible, which is why they printed a 2nd for no charge. It was better, but still poor. The second library has a MakerBot "Replicator 2" (.1mm). It was much better and I thought that one would be usable, but it's not.

      Before I PM you with details, I'm curious, have you already successfully printed one?

      Thanks again for your kind offer.
      Ron

        Hi Peter. I received the pods you sent. They are excellent, thank you very much.

        It's great to run into another case of one hobbyist graciously helping another. HRW members rock!

            All the PLA I've had didn't have that shine but PETG does.
