Worm Drive Maker

Worm Drive Maker



The plugin creates worm drives (worm as archimedian screw) for various set of parameters. Program lets to choose system of module, dimensioning of module, units and much more. Parameters and description of functions are available in Guide.pdf. Information about invoices is available in Consulting Services section (please click More to expand the section).

Execution in most cases takes about a minute on i7/8GB RAM/512GB SSD computer.

Plugin 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. You must be aware that real dimensions of manufactured components may be different than in the design. Every material has different characteristics and its parameters may change during time depending on the kind of material, temperature and humidity of environment, workload, etc. Simplest motion analysis can be done by using joints and motion rules prepared by the plugin. Both involute and trochoid interferences can be checked by eyes but there’s better, dedicated built-in tool (TOOLS à Interference) available in Autodesk® Fusion 360™.

  • Very useful

    Works nice and relatively easy. A written documentation for the parameters would be nice

  • Awesome!

    It works very well. I'm using it to make a gripper for a 6-axis robot arm.

    I wish there was an option to add a second gear on the other side of the worm gear.

  • На самом деле достаточно неплохо

    Вполне хорошая визуализация. Точная геометрия. 

    Из минусов - не формирует таблицу параметров. Очень бы пригодилось.
