University of Padua, Italy
Department of Study: Mechanical Engineering
I am attending the first year of Mechanical Engineering at University of Padua, and I think Omniwheels are a very good example of what you can do with mechanics.
This project allows you to make your own omniwheel in order to use it in your creations (you can create more than one in order to have more reliability and reduce backslash, for instance, locking two of them using a spacer).
To install the 8 rolls you have got to cut 8 alluminium (or brass) sticks (3mm of diameter and 20mm of lenght) and placing them beetween the two main parts of the omniwheel.
I hope you enjoyed my design and I am looking forward to see these omniwheels applied in some of your projects ;)
