Using the Shaft Generator Featurescript

Using the Shaft Generator Featurescript

The shaft generator featurescript does exactly what the name implies - automatically generates any and all shaft types you’ll need in FRC. Gone are the days of spending time repeatedly sketching boring hex shafts.

Simply launch the shaft generator and select the desired origin of the shaft. From here you have the option to select an end face or simply enter the length of the shaft. Select your preferred retention type and voila - you have yourself a generated shaft.

Generated Hex Shaft

This featurescript saves lots of time and saves you from some pretty uninteresting CAD work. Additionally, it reduces the amount of features in your feature tree, making it easier to both navigate and to modify.

Shout out to Julia on ChiefDelphi for sharing this (and many more) featurescript.
