OSE Design Manual - Force and Torque Calculations
Presenting first at the Open Source Microfactory STEAM Camp:
Force and Torque Calculations – for stepper motors, shaft torque in general, geardowns, rpms and hp; clamping force. Position, velocity (IPM), acceleration (max Acceleration in 3d printers), jerk. Common RPMs, such as drill, stepper, and fast electric motor. Applications – Desired performance in mechatronic systems must be calculated – otherwise you are just guessing whether something will work or not. Calculations allow us to determine whether something will be efficient – and for energy use – efficiency is important if we care about environmental impact.
