It’s ya boi back at it with another revision of the swerve drive.


#2

Looks very nice! Would you be willing to share the cad?


#3

What are you doing for the bevel gear attached to the wheel? It looks like it’s dead-axle with the wheel, but I don’t see how they’re attached to each other.


#4

Could be turned down and pressed on?


#5

Ding ding ding, this one’s a winner, folks! (Except the wheel is bored out instead)


#6

I’ll be releasing the CAD files sometime this weekend.


#7

Makes sense, it’s easier to cut plastic than steel :stuck_out_tongue:


#8

Is a slot on top of the big steering gear necessary to prevent rubbing against a bearing of this nature?


#9

I’m not really sure what you mean by “slot” - if you’re talking about the bottom face of the turning gear scraping against the plate, there’s actually a 1/16" gap designed into the turning gear such that it doesn’t rub against the plate.

I was actually thinking of a different swerve, whoops, but that actually answers my question, thanks.
