mechanical iris design
Design iris diaphragms significantly quicker with the Iris Calculator
Iris diaphragm designer. Input your ideal outer dimension and aperture range, and this tool will calculate an optimal iris design layout. You can then export all the parts to DXF files, and manufacture your iris.
Alter dimensions and refine elements of your iris mechanism on the fly. Turn components on/off, and operate the iris diaphragm in real-time. Then easily export the iris components as DXF files, to extrapolate and finalize your design.
Simply enter any dimensions you know - along with your minimum and maximum apertures - and the rest of the geometry will all be calculated for you!
