Gear Design

Tell me the best gear design software product. It is desirable that he integrates 3D files into solidworks. Thank you in advance!

Accepted answer

My way of doing gears is applying the function of involut and write a bunch of formulas in knowledge advisor in CATIA. I believe solidworks has something very similar (being also from DSS)

So with parameters and formulas you can generate complex accurate gear geometry. The relations are in any gears handbook like this one

Camnetics has some great tools. I've only used their tools a few times to generate gears, but have always been happy with the results.
