I rarely use solidworks since I'm used to NX. However, one of my previous assignment needed me to draw a gear, and from what I heard solidworks has a toolbox where you only need to put in several info like pitch diameter etc. and it will generate a gear. In the case of NX, I drew the gear from scratch, not to mention several small angles that I've omitted...I've uploaded a sample I drew from NX 7.5...
Please do advise.
go to start in windows
right click on my computer
click on pro properties in right click menu
under system properties advanced tab click on "environment variable"
click on new
add new variable as UGII_COUNTRY = prc as shown in figure then click ok and again ok
when you open nx you get this GC toolkit in your menu bar.
this is what it does
WTH! That really work....I should have ask you a year earlier while I was doing my assignment for power transmission system. Thanks once again......now i have to learn how to use it..hahaha (won't be a problem)....
Some people could also need to add these lines :
to the file %UGII_ROOT_DIR%\menus\ug_custom.dirs.dat
How do I get to the UGII_ROOT_DIR file to add the lines?
How to Deactivate this tool box Pls Help me
extract this,there are two folders "gear GRIP" containing grip file with .grx extention
other folder is "gear user function" containing nx open files
you can use either to make spur gears
in new model. File menu>execute>grip or nx open (navigate to extracted folder) and ok
input the values of gear you want and its done
i think your gear's pressure angle is 10,then use .grx file
for helical gear try using .exp file
there is gear modeling application in nx itself,it requires changing custom_dirs.dat file to appear under tools menu (which i am not able to set) setting environment variables of windows
you can make any gear with it, internal,external,spur,helical,bevel.
very good... but is only for china licence :(
many many thanks

That script is really old and slow and creates a part much more complex than needed. NX should add a modern version of it.
They should also add a equation surfer plotter button.
There are some addons such as Kisssoft
