I’m trying to model an ovoid crankset for a bicycle.
If the teeth are a set dimension and pitch to accommodate the bike chain links, and there a specific number of teeth to be included (example 53 teeth) how can the oval curve path be automatically adjusted (offset?) to accommodate the specified quantity of teeth exactly?
At the moment ‘array along a curve’ requires trial and error to get a fit. Is there a way to control things parametrically?
Would Grasshopper provide a solution (I have no experience with Grasshopper yet).
Thanks and let me know if any of this scenario needs any clarification.
