The second part of the design was also the most complicated. The base will hold the controller and a battery once I can prove it works. The three standoffs will eventually support a cover over the magnet holder I modeled yesterday and is the gray spinning part in the picture below. The middle pillar is square on one side so I can mount a reed switch to the face. There are three supports, so the cover will stay parallel to the base, which would otherwise add friction to the wheel. Next, I will model a lid, which won't have to be anything fancier than a copy of the base without posts and a wider hole for the shaft.
