Helical Gear System
We, The Queen’s VEX U Robotics Team have designed a new helical gear system using Autodesk Inventor Professional 2022. Our system is compatible with existing VEX high strength shafts and is operable in two configurations: parallel or at a 90 degree to one another. This allows for high-power torque transfer between perpendicular axels or around bends. These two applications give the helical gear ample utility when building space constrained VEX robots.
