Arm Design Projects
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.
