My Video of Satnogs Rotator V3

Hello,
I just finished my Satnogs Rotator V3 with stepper motor and controller V1.
I edited a time lapse-video that could be a valid guide for everyone wants to build it.

I want to say thanks to all SATNOGS team for the beautiful design and @iz5rzr for the 3D printing and the support during the construction.
Enjoy,

Amazing work. Seems to be a lot of hours behind making this rotor.

Thanks for a informative video. I am in the process of gathering and printing parts. This video
gives me a clear understanding of the assembly and test process.

Thanks Mike,
the final purpose of the video was just to allow other makersto save time and go straight through the assembly flow. In other words, save time for doubts that someone else already solved.
I’m at your disposal if you have questions during the assembly and the material procurement.
Bests,
Alfredo

Thank you Lars,
I didn’t count the total amount of working hours, because the time runs away when I’m in the lab :slight_smile:
But for sure I can say the most time-consuming phases are:

  1. refining of the worm gear and the axis gear for a correct coupling
  2. refining of the axis tubes to let them enter properly in the ball bearings
    Regards,
    Alfredo
