Worm Drive Maker
The plugin creates worm drives (worm as archimedian screw) for various set of parameters. The program lets to choose the system of the module, dimensioning of the module, units and much more. Parameters and descriptions 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.
The 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 the 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 the environment, workload, etc. The 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 a better, dedicated built-in tool (TOOLS à Interference) available in Autodesk® Fusion 360™.
