Hello all. Is it possible to create an elliptical belt pulley ?
You mean a pulley with "elliptical profile" teeth or pulley shape?
like this? (image attached)... its a profile of ellipse teeth swept around a path..
I want create on solidworks a belt between a circular pulley and a elliptical pulley. But this is not possible because the mate "belt/chain" is only possibile between circular pulley. I want create this mechanism because I need to modulate the angular displacement of the elliptical pulley, that is the driven pulley.
Read this thread and see if it will help:
oh man,.. that is kewl!
You want an elliptical pulley?
Yes, this is possible. The simplest version would be to draw an ellipse in a sketch and then extrude it. Then put a hole in the middle. Done.
