The objective of this tutorial is to:
|1.||Add a sketch-loop to represent the path of a belt|
|2.||Add a Motion-Path FB to automatically add a Motion-Point to the sketch-loop to move along the belt.|
|3.||Add a rotating Part that will become the Pulley.|
|4.||Use Add-Pulley to link the Linear Motion of the Motion-Point to the Angular Rotation of a Part|
This is a new relationship between Belt and Pulley elements.
Notes: Belts and Pulleys
Belt and Pulleys
Preferred Tooth-Pitch, Belt-Length, Maximum and Minimum Distances between Pulley Centres, Minimum and Maximum Tension, Minimum and Maximum number of Pulley-Teeth, ...
You can use the Motion-Path FB dialog-box to select a dimension to control the length of the belt to a target length.
You can thus make sure the belt has an integer number-of-teeth and available from catalogues for belts and pulleys.
