If you need a DC Motor for your next project, you can obviously buy it or you can build it!

In order to assist with the winding process for a self-built motor, on thingiverse you can find an innovative fixture with two stepper motors and an Arduino Nano for control. 

Component needed :

  1. Arduino nano
  2. Nema17 Stepper
  3. A4988 driver
  4. 0.96″ OLED Display
  5. Push buttons
  6. Switch
  7. Drill Chuck
  8. 626ZZ Bearing

The bare motor armature is held in a vertical orientation by one stepper, while the other winds wire using a hollow 3D-printed feeder mechanism. User interface consists of an OLED screen and buttons that let you select the number of windings and another to advance the armature to the next coil location. 

Here you can find the Arduino code. Watch the video below to see how it works:
