Industrial Worm Gearbox / Gear Reducer

LarsRb shared on thingiverse:

Industrial Worm Gearbox / Gear Reducer (Cutaway version)

PART OF MY INDUSTRIAL GEARBOX COLLECTION

This is a fully 3D printable version of an industrial worm gearbox / gear reducer. This cutaway version can be used for training purposes, and has a gear ratio of 1:30

Worm gears
A worm gear consists of a “worm” and a “worm gear”. The worm is a gear with a screw-like shape, when the worm turns 360 degrees the worm gear rotates 1 teeth. Worm gear reducers are typically used in applications that requires high speed reduction when space is limited. Another advantage of the worm gear is that “back driving” is nearly impossible.

No additional hardware needed!

UPDATE 7-16-2018
I`ve added a cap that can make the gearbox non-cutaway, see the green parts in the fourth picture. When you want the gearbox to be non-cutaway, you have to print the 2 files named with NON-CUTAWAY.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
