Modeling of Roped Elevator

Roped Elevators are the most common type of elevators. They are faster compared to their hydraulic counterparts. This makes them more suitable for higher rising, modern buildings.

They also offer smoother and more comfortable rides.Another advantage is that these units are much more energy efficient because they use counterweight for balancing the cab’s weight.

The objective of this case study is to design and model a roped elevator to demonstrate its working principle with the help of Solidworks.
