One unique application of 2 drive motors per swerve module is to sum their outputs at different gear ratios, allowing you to have a bit of an e-cvt depending on which motor you direct more current to. Team 2609 Beaverworx (also on the Einstein winning alliance) used this approach to build the fastest swerve in Ontario:
4414 swerve and its consequences have been disastrous for tryhard cad nerds
I’ve updated the GrabCAD link to include the native SOLIDWORKS version as well. Hopefully this will make it easier to adapt to your needs (and to increase the free speed).
You can’t CAD your swerve and have it too
No one asked but I answered, here is a non-inverted 3 motor swerve that fits in a 6" x 6" footprint that is entirely
plagiarizing SDS my own work
And yes I hate electrical
Beautiful, now make it a differential system so even the programmers hate you
Really slick way to do it if you’re not married to inverted like us.
Acronym explanation please?

Just start selling these, you’ll get at least a couple of buyers
i too hate packaging things well… lol
that wiring would put me in a coma
stg i thought that was a 4 motor swerve. that gear next to the bottom left motor threw me off
Hey Clayton, this sort of thing is actually on the list for summer. I see you’re using the same ratio for both motors; did you think about giving the second motor a taller ratio for a bit more cruise velocity? We have the WCP modules with belts, so this should be an easy change. any interest in helping a summer student apply these ideas to the WCP modules?
Someone needs to do a double motor for directional rotation too
