Procedural Cogged Belt

Recommended Posts

I have been running around in circles. I have a setup that sort of works not too procedural tho.

Question'  Any ideas on how to get this more procedural and to be able to adjust how many teeth,spacing etc.

 

Right now I have a set with one profile for the main area of the belt and using a sweep.  Another profile for the teeth copied to points from the curve. Then I do a boolean cut. 

Fyi ,, The curve I'm using cannot move as it's already placed and bent where it needs to be. 

 

Any help with this would be super cool

you could model a section, copy and transform to get a long strip of the teeth and then use the Chain SOP to deform it around the curve(making sure that ridigity is turned off)
