34. Crest Design

Ready-to-use parametric crest design. It is an optional part of the cross_cube assembly to get a motorized gimbal system.

To get an overview of the possible crest designs that can be generated by crest(), run:

> python crest.py --run_self_test

34.1. Crest Parameters

The crest part inherit several parameters from Cross_Cube Design.

34.2. Crest Parameter Dependency

34.2.1. crest_cnc_router_bit_radius

The following parameter are related to the router_bit radius:

  • crest_cnc_router_bit_radius
  • gear_cnc_router_bit_radius
  • gear_hollow_smoothing_radius
  • cross_cube_cnc_router_bit_radius
  • face_hollow_smoothing_radius
  • top_hollow_smoothing_radius

The crest_cnc_router_bit_radius parameter guarantees the smallest value for all related router_bit radius parameters.
