HypocycloidCam
SketchUp Plugin to Generate Hypocycloid Cams for Cycloid Reduction Drives.
HypocycloidCam

This is a Alex Lait's Python script translated into SketchUp Ruby. It is used for exporting a DXF of the 2D Cam profile, so it can be cut on a CNC machine.

v 1.0.1 : [2013] Original Releaase.

v 1.1.0 : [2014] Fixed dialog to use current model units and accept SketchUp length string expressions.

Future: We (John Boundy & I,) will be 3Dizing this plugin so it can more easily make 3D drive components that can be 3D Printed. Also will likely add multi-language support.

Choose the Plugins > Hypocycloid Cam menu item to open the dialog, and make the cam settings.

See http://www.zincland.com/hypocycloid for information on hypocycloid reduction drives.

Does not currently do ANY checking for sane input values and it
is possible to create un-machinable cams, use at your own risk.

Suggestions:

  • Eccentricity should not be more than the pin radius.
  • Has not been tested with negative values, may have interesting results!
