Planetary Ring Gear with Outer Teeth

Our VEX IQ Team 839A designed a swerve drive for VEX IQ but the motor wires would get twisted when it turned. To solve this problem, they designed a new ring gear that allows the swerve drive module to be able to do infinite spin and the motor wires are not twisted. This is part of the VEX 2020-2021 online challenge VEX IQ Challenge “Make It Real” CAD Engineering Challenge Sponsored by Autodesk® submission, details of the submission could be found here.
