Optimized for machining? Definitely not.
It’s what you’ve all been waiting for…
The Falcon Cycloidal!
I was planning on fully machining and assembling it before making this post, but for various reasons I doubt that will happen anytime soon so I’m just posting now.
This is a 25:1 cycloidal reduction that replaces both the output shaft and output plate of a Falcon 500. It ends up about 10mm longer than a stock falcon and the entire assembly (according to the cad) weighs 1.5 lbs.
All the bearings are 67XX bearings sourced directly from somewhere in China.
