Edit: Just discovered wheel geometry is off. Hoping to get a more accurate and better solving V3 out soon.
Welcome to the Parametric Mecanum Wheel Repository, a project undertaken during the 2017-2018 FTC season Relic Recovery!
Years of FTC competition had showed me the inadequacies of store-bought mecanum wheels and was the inspiration for this project.
Here you can find the designs I made and how I made them - documented in two SOLIDWORKS drawings and an excerpt from our Engineering Notebook. You are invited to make, copy, improve or learn from these designs.
Some helpful notes:
That's all for now!
Information can be found in enclosed file: 'Engineering Notebook'
Designed using SOLIDWORKS, patience and a lot of prototypes!
Overview and Background
European FTC competitor seeking to push own boundaries. Currently in High School.
Lesson Plan and Activity
Active over the course of a year-long FTC season. Most of the design work done at home. Manufacturing was done at a workshop provided by school for Robotics and other STEAM activities.
- CAD Design
- Wheel Design
