Sproket Creator script - free to a good home.

Free to a good home, my abandoned sprocket creator script, which creates a N toothed chain sprocket tooth profile.

Lost interest in developing it, so I may as well pass it on to someone else.

Usage:

Builds the tooth profile of a N tooth sprocket for a chain
with Chain Pitch P, Roller Diameter RD, and Roller Width RW.

Download the script here (no website, sorry!)

Not tested in 2.44.

Tried on 2.43 and SVN version. It worked well. Thanks for sharing. :slight_smile:

A quick update on how to use.

Info on sprockets and chains, here: http://www.gizmology.net/sprockets.htm

The script also creates an empty called “empty.N” where N is the tooth count.

Once the tooth profile has been created you only need to add an array modifier with Fixed Count N and Object Offset “empty.N”

e.g. 50 tooth sprocket, use 53 for the array count and “empty.53” for the object offset.
