Here’s a useful example of configurations in an assembly that you can use when designing your robot in Solidworks this year. Why configure your gearbox each time you need to use one in your design? You can download the Solidworks CAD files from the link below. Just insert this Versaplanetary model into your design, select the “ConfigurationManager” tab on your design tree to select the different configurations for the Versaplanetary gearbox.
There are folders for the original VersaPlanetary and for the new Version 2.
The pilot ring is not a Vex CAD model, but a best guess based on the dimensioned drawing.
You can choose from an RS550 motor, BAG motor, 775PRO motor, dual BAG motors, dual 775PRO motors, single or dual stage for single motors (single stage for dual motor options only), your choice of CIM shaft, 3/8" hex shaft, 1/2" hex shaft, 1/2" round shaft, with or without the integrated encoder.
Just uploaded the files to GrabCad for anyone using Solidworks who is interested in having a configurable VersaPlanetary model for the upcoming season. If you are unfamiliar with “Configurations” in Solidworks, look it up. Very useful stuff.
I went through all configs before posting, yes all 100 or so, and they worked for me.
Make sure you drill down all the way on the config screen until you get to the shaft type.
There are about four tiers to get to integrated encoders.
