Would it be an idea to place all datasheets of parts used in the stock Maslow in the github repo?
This to make sure we all are on the same page when it comes to the stock Machine
gearbox type (for gear ratio, shaft diameter, etc.)
The gearbox shaft on the stock Maslow is 8mm right? (or is it 6mm??)
Having the actual datasheets all in one place could eventually avoid certain mistakes.
And it would make a good reference once people start to experiment with different gear ratio’s and smaller size gearboxes on smaller Maslow builds (or bigger ones for that matter)
I’m getting a bit lost when trying to figure out what way to go.
do i wait for batch 3
do i source all parts on my own (and probably make some mistakes)
do i source cheaper parts to build a tiny Maslow (and still wait for batch3 (or batch 4? depending on my budget status)
If i choose the last option i could eventually feed new data into the project… on the smaller stuff.
BUT then i probably can’t mount a router on the sled as the motors may not be strong enough.
Trying to be patience… hehe
To make a start here is the sheet of the L298 chip
I’m in the process of building a Maslow with some friends and have been collecting datasheets, documents and documenting the build process. Feel free to take some of the data I’ve collected:
I think it would be a good idea.
@abetusk Thanks, that drawing of the motor dimensions is a bit of a struggle to find when you need it .
It also would be cool to have some CAD models of the parts
So that we have parts to shuffle around in CAD to draw several frame options. And that would give us LEGO style parts to let us visualise idea’s in 3D (one day…)
A CAD model of the stock Maslow would be very cool as well, as a reference to motor positions etc.
I’ve added a folder in Electronics/Documentation called “Data Sheets” with data sheets for all of the parts
Check it out here:
Let me know if I’ve missed anything, or make a pull request to add it!
Thank you @Bar!
Good to have stuff like this all in one place.
Here are CAD model I have found / made…
A suitable motor/gearbox model here Motor & Gearbox
My bracket model Bracket
Sprocket (wrong bore size though) Sprocket
Z Motor & Bracket (My Model) Z Motor & Bracket.zip (55.9 KB)
Thanks! The Z-motor looks nice (just loaded the STL in freeCAD)
Still wrestling with GrabCAD to get the other file
Here are the files (I just wanted to get the original attribution in place)

The joy of virtual LEGO parts. That wormgear + motor is nice!
