Grasshopper Escapement Builder (C) 2017 Dr. Rainer Hessmer

This open source Grasshopper Escapement Builder is based on the description published by Guy D. Aydlett: The Anatomy Of The Grasshopper (the pdf file has been shared by jrbeal on his clock forum). I am aware of shared spreadsheets that implement the equations but as far as I know this is the first online tool that generates Grasshopper escapement drawings.

The page runs in modern browsers with SVG support (if in doubt, use Chrome). The generated SVG drawing can be downloaded and imported in CAD applications or opened in the open source SVG editor Inkscape to export as dxf or other formats.
