Hi Itzik,

I finally got a chance to check out your motor calculation in Mathcad.  This is fantastic!

This is very similar to what I am hoping to get put together for teams locally.  My goal is to have a library available for common calculations that include explanations.

I think it would be a great way to introduce students to the statics and dynamics of their robots and then let them compare to empirical results.

I'll share with the community as I progress.

Also...we'll be using Windchill to share data and allow students to edit documents by check-in/check-out procedures.

Great Job Itzik!

It is terrific to see Mathcad used in this way. You have made use of (and demonstrated) Mathcad's key features for engineering calculations:

  • Standard Math Notation & Unit Handling Capabilities for Engineering Calculations
  • Text capabilities to provided documentation of the purpose and execution of the worksheet
  • Image handling to provide a graphic illustrating the calculation

Well done!
