OpenSCAD files for a printable stepper-based gimbal. Originally designed for a particular telescope, it can be modified to suit a variety of equipment.

This project was not originally designed with distribution in mind, so the comments can be lacking. I may make a sweep through at a later date to improve this. Until then, note that the project is designed using only 3mm hardware in mind.

The larger project associated with these models is still incomplete. As such, these models are subject to further change in the future.

I utilized Greg Frost's parametric involute gear library for this project. You can find the library at: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3575

You can’t perform that action at this time.
