Tom Oetjens, DCS, to Showcase Fast, Easy, and Comprehensive Gear Modeling

Coming soon to 3DCS Mechanical Modeler Add-on Module, the Gear Module provides an easy-to-use tool for modeling gear assemblies. 

The Gear Module provides unique tools for modeling gears that streamlines the process, making it easy to quickly model multiple interlocking gears on your assembly. 

New for Mechanical Modeler Add-on - Gear Module

The 3DCS Gear Module (Mechanical Modeler Add-on) can be used to assess gear backlash and mounting misalignments, perform angular backlash analysis, and create flank test displays and contact patterns. Here are some of the measurements it supports:

  • Backlash and system backlash.
  • Line of action contact.
  • Center mounting distance.
  • Mounting angles.
  • Contact pressure angles.
  • Flank contact area.
  • Radial tooth interface.
  • Radial tooth gap.

Plus, it supports both fine and coarse gear modeling, depending on the gear and business requirements.
