With the new Greyt Elevator v3 releasing today I decided to make a simple spreadsheet for teams like mine who already have certain components, but still want to know what to buy.
This design sheet currently includes:
- Options to select which individual items and quantities to purchase.
- Size calculator that calculates carriage width and travel distance of the elevator based on size inputs.
- It also calculates the amount of box tube required to build any given size, which is automatically input to the price calculator as well.
- Certain items that can be purchased cheaper from other sources are linked at the bottom, with notes on the potential tradeoffs.
I’m also working on adding options for the gearbox kits. This will hopefully have an option to use the MAXPlanetary gearbox instead of a VersaPlanetary, but I need to work that out in CAD first.
