MKCad - 2020 Season Updates

Thanks! I’ll check it out

@Ty_Tremblay Thanks, I’ll check out the popped rivets soon.

@techplex is awesome and added the 2020 field to MKCad! We’ll work on making it more searchable add adding additional features like team versions soon.

would be cool to see the printable 2in mecanum wheels from 125 added to MKcad, they seem like they are going to be a popular option for intakes this year next to the wcp and ttb ones.

edit: sorry for the ping, i meant to reply to the thread, not your post.

If you find value in adding the lightweight one I did, go nuts.

I couldn’t find 6in versa wheels in MKCAD. What am I smoking?

there are no 6" versa wheels

do you mean these?

I did. Can’t find those either.

Added real quick. no weights or anything.

3in compliant wheels are not in the wheels library.

PS - the configurable versaplanetary assembly is the bee’s knees. I am loving MKCAD.


I also notice there isn’t any shaft collars. I’ve been importing my own into individual files and updating the material but it would be nice to be incorporated into MK.

Can the configurable Versa-planetary be edited so that 0 stages is possible (similar to attached photo that I had to do manually). That would be amazing.
Thanks again in advance, and I absolutely love MKCAD!

@Leechar careful there - the 775 free speed is higher than the max RPM of the mag encoder by a hefty margin.

MKCad - Shaft Retention ?

Had no idea that was a thing. Got lost in all the copies. Thanks Ty!

Another request for the gang: REV UltraPlanetary. Looks quite promising based on the Ri3D builds I’ve seen, and a 1000ish RPM shaft spinning for under $150 (half of that in the motor controller) is a strong price point.

Apparently these encoders have gotten better since I looked at the documents last, 15krpm max for quad output. My bad.

Small bug: Noticed there are a few fasteners missing weights. 10-32 locknuts among them. Important until Onshape finally adds those to the standard parts library…

Added weights to the nylocks. Might have messed you up in regards to updating them easily since I created closed composite parts with the nylon insert and the steel nut, but any new nuts you add will be weighted.

I just added a crowned pulley generator to MKCAD. Crowned pulleys are good for urethane flat belts and are really easy to print.
