Gearing FB

see Add Gearing FB

Use a Gearing FB to apply a linear function to those motion-values at its input-connector.

Ratio and Phase

Red-14-1 Gearing Ratio (See also Gearing as 'Real' or 'Ratio' )

Red-14-2 Add after Gearing-Ratio

Red-14-3 Add before Gearing-Ratio

Gearing as 'Real' or 'Ratio' 

Red-14-4 Gearing as 'Real'  

Enter a real number in the Gearing Ratio Red-14-1

Red-14-4 Gearing as 'Ratio'

Enter two integers in Red-14-5 & Red-14-6

Gearing RatioRed-14-1b = Input-Pulley / Output-Pulley

Red-14-5 Input-Pulley = ± All Integers, {including zero (for those that did not know that zero is an integer!)}

Red-14-6 Output-Pulley = Positive Integer ≥ 1


Connect a Gearing FB to the input of a Motion FB to change the motion-frequency.
