Descrição

ATTENTION MAC USERS: If you experience issues with the installer please see this article first. Then if you still have trouble installing the plugin e-mail me (ross.korsky@gmail.com) and I will provide a workaround.

Helical gears resemble spur gears with the teeth at an angle. They can be meshed in parallel or crossed orientations at 90 degrees or arbitrary angles and can be generated with as little as a single tooth forming a screw gear. 

Gears may be specified in either the 'Normal' or the 'Radial' system or the fixed profile Sunderland standard, any of which can be generated as either Left or Right handed. Handedness in helical gears refers to the direction the teeth lean when the gear is placed flat on a table. 

Using this add-in, proper Herringbone gears (such as the gears used for this add-in's thumbnail) can be created by using a Sunderland profile then mirroring the gear about one of its faces. In the case of Herringbone or other double-helix gears the handedness of the base gear is not as significant as it is for single helix gears - to effectively change the handedness of a Herringbone / double helix gear all you need to do is flip it over - whereas for a single helix gear it must be mirrored to change its handedness. 

Finally, by setting a helix angle of 0 degrees, Spur gears can be created and defined in the metric system (as opposed to the sample Spur Gear script which defines gears in the American system) with this add-in.

  • herringbone gear is wrong
    Muhammet Ali Bulat | junho 29, 2020 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    I created two herringbone gear in surrender mode. first 18 tooth and second 72 tooth. they are not compatible. neither in the program nor in the 3D output.

    Did you remember to make one left handed and the other right handed? Helical gears must be of opposite hands to mesh in classical gearing applications.


  • Great generator
    Alex Axenti | junho 27, 2020 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    I really like it, quick and easy to use 


  • fantastic
    Adrian Sippitt | maio 22, 2020 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Brilliant, thanks so much


  • Exactly what I was looking for
    Mustafa Naser | março 25, 2020 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Thanks a lot


  • This is so good!
    Michael Hwang | março 21, 2020 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    This is really good, and can generate regular spur gears as well if you set the helix to 0 degrees.


  • THANK YOU
    Ivan Korotchenko63 | março 01, 2020 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    THANK YOU


  • Very Helpful
    Eric Soderberg | janeiro 03, 2020 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Great sucess using this generator to make function 3d printed gears.  A requested new feature would be the option to create a tapered helical gear.


  • Works good
    max ist | outubro 03, 2019 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Easy to install, easy to use, perfect result - excelent! Thanks.


  • Thanks
    karam Mohammed | julho 24, 2019 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Thank you very much 


  • Nice!
    Erick Espinoza | maio 01, 2019 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Works pretty good!


  • useful tool
    Pablo Costas | abril 15, 2019 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Installer worked for MacOS without a problem.


  • Just what I needed
    Matt Whipple | abril 06, 2019 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Simple to use. Works great.


  • Thanks!
    Yuriy Skvortsov | fevereiro 08, 2019 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    The installer still does not work for MacOS, but Ross was kind to provide a usable package by e-mail. The addon works great! Really easy to use and results are perfect.


  • It's not parametric
    Radek J | agosto 12, 2018 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    It is not parametric :(


  • Thanks !!!
    Sergey Bob | julho 22, 2018

    Very many thanks !

     


  • Works great
    Thomas Fort | maio 20, 2018 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Very easy to use and gave me exactly what i needed


  • Inside gear?
    Colin Bradburne | abril 05, 2018 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Great gear generator.

    Can this also be used to generate the gear for the inside of a ring and not just the outside?


  • Awesome
    Rusty Nielsen | fevereiro 16, 2018 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Great add-in!


  • Excellent for herringbone gears
    Nick Biederman | novembro 27, 2017 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    This plugin is perfect for creating herringbone gears


  • Thanks!
    Igor Andreev | julho 17, 2017 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Thank you! Very comfortably!


  • Works Great!
    Michael Thiesen | junho 05, 2017 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Parameters are well documented and the resulting gears mesh nicely.


  • Keeps crashing Fusion
    Bjørn Borud | maio 27, 2017 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Haven't been able to use it since it consistently crashes Fusion 360.


  • Excellent!
    Darrell Nevers | maio 20, 2017 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    This definitely makes life quite a bit easier for designing gear boxes! Only downside is that the tooth count input won't accept parameters; it just throws an error – "Teeth – must be greater than 0." – when I try to use a pre-defined parameter


  • Thanks!!
    Sai Kishore | fevereiro 03, 2017

    Thanks for the addon


  • Change active units
    Brian Stewart | janeiro 18, 2017 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Be nice to select either metric or inch for the units. Or have it use the default units for each design. Not everyone uses metric.


  • Exactly what I was looking for!
    Box Jockey | dezembro 06, 2016 Download confirmado (O que é isto?)

    Easy to use and the results are fantastic!!
