Does NX 7.5/8 has any toolbox (e.g to gears and pinion) like in solidworks?
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.

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.
