Double Cardan Shaft MapleSim Model - Double Cardan Shaft S-Function - MapleSim Model Gallery

Double Cardan Shaft

This model demonstrates two Cardan joints connected together. This allows the two shafts to spin with the same constant speed in two different planes. By connecting the Cardan joints together they create a Double Cardan Shaft. The double joint structure will allow the non-uniform rotation resulting from one Cardan joint to be cancelled by the second Cardan joint.
