HOWTO disassemble a brushless outrunner motor

Shortly after the ER16/11 Collet-Chucks for PicoCNC spindle arrived, the brushless outrunner motors for this project followed suit. After closer inspection, both motors appear to be as equal as their datasheets suggested so the first prototype will be assembled with the brandless 50EUR C5045 890KV brushless outrunner (the red/black one on the right).

picoCNC - A modular fabrication robot

Hackerspaces, FabLabs and Open-Eco-Villages need tools to bootstrap their own individual environments. Although RepRaps, Makerbots and Lasercutters are more common these days, many groups are still lacking CNC routers/mills to create really solid tools or parts for bigger machines. Maybe some of the solutions presented here will inspire other groups, to build more CNC machines and extend our ability to make stuff on our own and for each other, by sharing plans how to build machines and plans for…

VESC - An open-source/hacker-friendly BLDC ESC

Next generation robots, drones and motorized scooter/skateboard/e-bike projects need efficient and resilient BLDC controllers, so if you're also looking for a solid open-source brushless motor speed controller (BLDC ESC) for your project or knowledge/inspiration to bootstrap your own, then you most definitely want to have a look at VESC.
