This is a 3D printed replacement side-brush gear for a Roomba 500/600 series. The side brush motor gear tends to strip and needs replaced once in a while. Here’s the design if anyone would like to print their own.
- Printer: Ender 3v2
- PLA: 1.75mm
- Bed: 60c
- Nozzle: 215c
- Infill: 50%
- Infill density: 10%
- Supports: touching buildplate only
- layer height: .1 mm
- Print speed: 50 mm/s
- Adhesion: skirt or brim
Roomba Side Brush Gear STL
(I printed the Roomba_side_brush_gear_2_v4.stl)
The side where the supports were is a little bit rough but the gear still works great. I printed a few which I’ll leave for members in the roomba parts bin (under the 3D printer area). If you take the last one please print a few on one of the VHS 3D printers.
Edit: We have many parts for fixing roombas including the IR LED pairs that fix the circle of death error. Join us on slack in #roombarama for more info.
