• HOW TO MAKE WORM?

THERE IS NO OPTION FOR WORM. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME TO FIND IT>

Kósa Gábor | June 28, 2023

tricky! 1, select the external gear option. 2, Adjust the helix. 3, teeth will be the number of paragraphs 4, Gear helix is ​​the length of the worm

Have you got the solution?

• Complicated

I just want a Gear with 42 teeth and a diameter of 35mm .... no option to do so

Nico Schlüter (Publisher) | February 28, 2023

Hello, thank you for your feedback. I am a bit confused what the purpose of this feature would be, as mating gears need to be of the same module to work together, and creating gears by number of teeth and diameter would create gears of non-standard module, you would need to do quite a bit of math to ensure two gears created this way could mesh. As a workaround for your problem it is quite simple to generate a gear of specific pitch diameter and number of teeth. Simply divide the number of teeth by the desired pitch diameter to get the module. 42 / 35 = 0.83333333 So a gear with a module of 0.83333333mm and 42 teeth would have a pitch diameter of 35mm For feature requests I would recommend opening an issue on the GitHub page. Hope this helps!

What's the problem with putting 42 teeth and 0.8 module and getting a pinion with an outside diameter of 35.2? Maybe you just don't want to figure out how to do it?

Evan Barnes | April 05, 2023

Gear diameter is determined by things like the number of teeth and the module or pitch. You can't really precisely control the external diameter of a gear, unless you want to do some complex working backward from diameter to calculate the required pitch or module, and even then, you'd probably only get sort of close to 35mm diameter.

fatto! modulo 0.79545; diametro 35mm; z=42

• Best gear plugin I've used

I could use this really easily, but works great

• Works great. Non-parametric

This is more flexible than the gear script included with F360. It's not parametric. It'll pick up user parameters when you first create a gear, but if you edit the parameter the gear will not update.

When you mouse-over the tooth-count and helix-angle you'll get a hint on how to do worm gears - you need a high angle and a tooth count of 1 or 2.

• Good!

Отличный плагин! Включает в себя все необходимое, внешние и внутренние шестерни, прямл и косозубые, реёки. И при этом все корректно работает.

• Great tool with a slight improvement

I like this tool but like many others it dumps the gear into the root directory. I was able to change that on other tools and this tool too by replacing rootComponent with active Component in the Python code. It seems to be working fine with this addon and maybe that is something you will want to add to a new version as standart. Thanks

• Thank you

Nice and usefull

• Looks great! Can we please have a "root fillet radius" setting?

Thanks for creating this!

Can we please have a "root fillet radius" option? Same as how the regular "Spur Gear" sample add in does.

:D

• Nice plugin

It's a great plugin for small projects, it would be nice if you could work with parameters so you could edit the gears later on.

Yes this would be extremely useful and I don't know why this functionality is not standard X)

• Excellent plugin

• best plugin for worm and worm gear

Thank you very much very helpful

• Great work!

• Very good also for worm gears!

This plugin works excellent.

Als received some great support from the author.

• I'm waiting fot this best gear!

Thanks my friend.

• Great plugin!

Great plugin! Please add worm gears and bevel gears functionality! as right now we can only make the worm not the worm gear... otherwise great plugin

• Thank you !

Works fine on my conputer, Thanks a lot!
