Description

This is a minimalistic gear design application. As such, its designs are made following the metric module DIN standard series. Regardless, it is made for everyone, no matter your amount of knowledge or if you have an engineering background. It includes 11 different types of gears (7 standards, 2 non-standard and 2 experimental) for every project you might want to implement them in:

  1. Spur Gear.
  2. Simple/Double Helical Gear.
  3. 90° Bevel Gears.
  4. Gear Rack.
  5. Worm Gear Drive (helical and straight hobbed face).
  6. Standard Internal Spur Gear.
  7. Non-Standard Internal Spur Gear (tooth profile is inverted; it’s better for less trimming interference).
  8. Standard Internal Helical Gear.
  9. Non-Standard Internal Helical Gear (tooth profile is inverted; it’s better for less trimming interference).
  10. Profile Shifted Spur Gear (Experimental method).
  11. Profile Shifted Helical Gear (Experimental method).

 

The two types considered non-standard were included for 3D printing since these designs of internal gears have proven to be practical when tight tolerances are a liability. Nonetheless, these designs are as useful as others.

The two variants considered experimental are the ones that use profile shifting. Profile shifting is a manufacturing method for gears that are needed to fit a larger/smaller mesh space while remaining with the same specs (number of teeth, module, pressure angle, etc.). If you’re planning to fabricate these gears using our designs, you have to consider they won’t reflect the “under cut” condition (for more information, visit KHK Profile Shifting). This design method is still in development and should not be relied on for accurate visualization or industrial level designing.

  • Does what it says on the tin

    Easy, simple interface. Doesn't make everything possible,  but a lot more than I'd be able to do without it.

    Good work!


  • Causes Stop dialog when trying to shutdown
    David Manning | November 17, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have noticed that this app won't let Fusion 360 shutdown without having to click a dialog to stop the add-in. 
    While not a show stopper it's really anoying. 
    Appart from that, I'm still getting used to it but looks great. 


  • Useful tool

    If anyone has issues getting the worm screw to line up nicely with the corresponding gear, the distance is: (module)*4.254mm and the offset is (module)*0.4mm.

    It would be handy if the generator did this automatically, but it's a nice free tool regardless.


  • GGG (good gear generator)
    Gaspar Igor | July 26, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Tested with worm gears, it works. Thx.


  • Super

    Nice work!


  • It makes gears
    Nathan Lutz | July 03, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I've played around with it a bit and it seems to work well.
