How can I model a train gear in CATIA V5?
I would like to simulate a gear train mechanism with the DMU Kinematics module, but I don't know how. I can build a gear mechanism but only involving two gears. Is there a way to simulate something like gear-a moves gear-b that moves gear-c?
I've solved this problem using a cheap trick in the assembly module: each gear has an angle constaint, so using formulae you can (kind of) simulate the whole mechanism. Anyway, I am sure there are better ways to archieve this.
