The usage of infinite-rotate servos has been pervasive in 3D robot assembling. Hardware companies have been providing expensive infinite-rotate servos for years. But considering limited fund of individual 3D-printed robot project, existing infinite-rotate servos in market are too expensive. This paper introduces a new approach but not easy way to modify non-infinite rotate servos into infinite rotate servos by cutting off the rotation limiting block inside servo and by leading out potentiometer originally inside servo. The result is efficient since the modification save lots time and stable performance for the servos. As for the cost around 90% cost can be saved. The approach which mentioned in this paper can be used and implemented in different fields; it can be suitable for the cases once the infinite rotate servos are in needed.
