Cycloidal Drive Maker
The plugin creates cycloidal drives of one or two planets. Units can be switched between millimeters and inches. You can change chosen parameters like the number of housing pins/rollers/bearings, the number of output bolts, spacing radiuses, eccentricity, diameters of central and side holes of planets and more. Parameters and descriptions of functions are available in Guide.pdf. Information about invoices is available in Consulting Services section (please click More to expand the section).
The attached video shows how to use the plugin and how to create complex examples which require two designs.
Execution in most cases takes about 10 seconds on i7/8GB RAM/512GB SSD computer.
The plugin doesn't check interferences automatically and doesn't perform any analysis of prepared components. Please make sure that the necessary check is done before releasing this onto production. You must be aware that the real dimensions of manufactured components may be different than in the design. Every material has different characteristics and its parameters may change during time depending on the kind of material, temperature and humidity of the environment, workload, etc. The simplest motion analysis can be done by using joints and motion rules prepared by the plugin. Both involute and trochoid interferences can be checked by eyes but there’s a better, dedicated built-in tool (TOOLS Interference) available in Autodesk® Fusion 360™.
It works very well. I'm using it for my 6-axis robot arm I am making.
this plugin is incredibly well done and very practical. for the design of cycloidal gear trains, it is perfect! take the time to understand the concepts before...and you will gain a lot afterwards!
