Adam Eriksson Posted April 12 Report Share Posted April 12 I am currently working on a mechanical flower where I will use a linear motion to create a radial motion from 0 to 90 degrees. The linear motion will be 40mm from a crankshaft and I am now having problems designing the rack and pinion. Is there any easy way to calculate or think about how the degrees and distances should be between the gears? I have done some research but have not found an easy way to calculate it and I would like some input on my current design. Right now I have the problem that the further the pinion moves upwards the more problems I get (see pictures). I would highly appreciate any help with this problem! Thanks in advance.
