Design Rationale

  • Above is a 1/2" auger version. Need to do 1" auger version.
  • 2x4 construction for ease and strength
  • Inner chamber is the hopper - no hopper needed outside of loading hole next to motor
  • Electronics are easy to access on side of the front cover
  • Motor mount is 3D printed for ease
  • Front is metal for heat resistance
  • Flange is welded to eliminate bolt pattern drilling
  • Front hole is step drilled for ease. Overdrilled to 1" for nonprecision adjustment
  • Insulator can be put on metal plate to prevent plastic from melting


Future Work

  • Nema 17 stepper with planetary gear drive as low cost drive option
