Arm Design Projects
by: Alex.Norton

Two Excel sheets meant to help someone design the reduction to an arm.

These are two Excel sheets meant to help someone design the reduction to an arm. I made them as projects for my engineering computing class because I often here people say that arms are hard. I personally have always found this to be the hardest part. They are meant to be used once the arm is designed in a CAD program so that the user can put the length, weight and COM of the arm in.

I’m pretty sure that they are accurate. However, if anybody finds a problem with them please tell feel free to speak up.

On a side note to use sheet B you do need macros enabled and should start by putting the motor, and arm inputs in before moving onto the gearbox inputs.
