pic: Low Profile Fully Enclosed Swerve



WIP. 2.5" wheel. 13.3fps

Looks pretty cool, any chance we could get some CAD files or some cutaway views to see whats going on in there?

CAD or it didn’t happen.

Yup.

cool idea, but how are you going to fix it if it seizes up during a competition?

My thoughts exactly. He might could change the casing to be a few plates and some standoffs, but I can’t say for sure without knowing what’s going on inside.

The low profile swerve is definitely a great concept and I would love to see it in person in the coming year(s) if it ends up on a robot.

For the last couple years GRT has inverted the CIM motors. The CIM clears the field by about 1/2" and the shaft is about the tallest part of the swerve. I will try to get a picture of it tomorrow unless there is someone that took a picture of it a competition this year and is will to post it. We were at Salt Lake, Houston, and Silicon Valley.
