OSE Design Manual - Pulleys, Sprockets, and Screws
Presenting first at the Open Source Microfactory STEAM Camp:
Pulleys, Belts, Screws – How to implement power transmission in direct drive and geardown without using meshing gears. GT2 belts. 3D printed pulleys. Pulley-based geardown. 3D printed belts. Mechanical advantage of a screw. Application of screw to motion and clamp-down. Applications – we can create large gear reduction with screws, and high accuracy or torque with proper belts. You will learn basics of doing this on small and large scales.
