Using Solidworks to design Stepper Motor Assembly (1)

Have recently acquiried a nice stepper motor from Jameco Electronics.  It is a small motor, less than 2″x2″x2″, but still has substantial torque.  I will get into more Arduino + Circuits + Electro-Mechanical detail soon, but for the moment, I wished to share a couple of screen-shots of the 3D model and the actual parts that I am modeling and assembling.

In this model, I’m (quite happily) making heavy use cross-part references in the assembly.  I caught onto that concept by reading the Top Down Design Overview at the SolidWorks website.








Panoramic of Simondale Excavating at work

It’s spring and with the beauty of the trees and forest, the end of the snow and rain, came time to do a bit more earth moving.  I believe this panoramic photograph should illustrate the quality of work rendered by Jim Simondale and Matt Simondale from Simondale Excavating, Warriors Mark, PA.  Matt can be reached at (814) 935-8591.

Bear in mind that this covers 180 degrees, so keep that in “perspective” as you scroll left-to-right.  As usual, click the picture to see full-size.
