I am looking for a away I can convert the horizontal rotation into vertical, typically we use bevel gear for such thing. But I am using a SG90 servo motor for which I am struggling to get the correct gears to achieve my requirement.

I am not sure is there is any other way I can do this using the SG90 servo motor. I am looking for something which I can 3D print if nothing is readily available.

  • $\begingroup$ Link to a data sheet. I suspect that you mean the Tower Pro SG90 RC servo (which is not a "servo motor", regardless of what people may call it) -- but no one can be sure. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Why can't you mount the servo on it's side? Do you need both vertical and horizontal motion? $\endgroup$
