Cycloidal reductions drives are basically a type of gearbox... but without gears per-say. They have little backlash meaning they're used in robots and machine tools. They have a really high ratio density and a high tooth engagement, meaning they're good for heaps of torque. Here's the wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cycloidal_drive

The only snag is that the script is for Fusion360
Here is the link to the script: https://github.com/mawildoer/cycloidal_ ... nerator.py
