Bevel gears maker (Basic)

Bevel gears maker (Basic)



The plugin creates bevel gears shafts for angles from 10 to 160 degrees. The basic version makes shafts with straight teeth.


Available features: 

  • Module (m): <0.5 ... 40> [mm],
  • Pressure angle (α): <14.5 ... 25> [°],
  • Clearance factor (fc): <0.1 ... 0.25>,
  • Shaft angle (Σ): <10 ... 160> [°],
  • Automatic tooth width or manual,
  • Tooth width (b): <m ... 0.5 Re (cone distance)> [mm],
  • Number of pinion teeth (zp): <8 ... 100>,
  • Backlash of pinion (bp): <-0.2 ... 0.2> [mm],
  • Number of wheel teeth (zw): <8 ... 300>,
  • Backlash of wheel (bw): <-0.2 ... 0.2> [mm],
  • Adding chamfers,
  • Chamfer width factor (fw): <0.1m ... 0.25m>,
  • Chamfer height factor (fh): <0.1m ... 0.25m>
  • Adding chamfers,
  • Width factor of chamfer (width = factor * module),
  • Height factor of chamfer (height = factor * module),
  • 2 types of preview: 3D, 3D with descriptions,
  • Adding joints,
  • Axes in gears,
  • Centering in Y-axis (shift can be obrained from components' descriptions),
  • Saving parameters,
  • Loading parameters (backward compatibility),
  • Resetting parameters,
  • Autoloading parameters,
  • Showing progress,
  • Cancelling process,
  • Motion links and other parameters in components' descriptions,
  • Gears are generated in a new document as direct design.


Execution of the plugin for small (ex. z10/z30) takes less than 15 seconds on i7/8GB RAM/512GB SSD computer. For a larger number of teeth, it can take a few minutes. During the operation a progress bar with the current step is visible and the process can be canceled.



The program doesn't check interferences automatically and doesn't perform any analysis of prepared components. Please make sure that the necessary check is done before releasing this onto production. Samples on how to perform interference, sections and motion analysis is presented on my YouTube channel.

    After a few click you can create the perfect bevel gears. Highly recommended

    The last time that I had to make a bevel gear I had to use another CAD system because without an app like this it is impossible to draw a mathematically correct involute in Fusion 360. I also had to build a parameters table and painstakingly draw the proper tooth profiles using equation driven curves, and then import it into Fusion 360 so that I could output my g-code.  It took 2 days to design a mathematically correct gear. When I saw this app I took a chance and bought it.  Literally, 10 minutes later I had a set of gears that I can make in my Y-axis lathe. This is the best $20 I have spent in a long time, and I highly recommend it. A suggestion for a future update is to support diametrical pitch in addition to module. My initial design was for diametrical pitch but since this program only supports module I had to alter my design slightly.
