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.
