describe how to create involute profile
In this link you have how to create involute profile in SolidWorks.
a) for the involute distances, i'd rather not type the values, it'd be more elegant to just use "add equation" and select the arc-distance needed.
b) instead of power trimming everything, just trimm the insides (it's what you are going to extrude).
c) i suggest to never leave blue outlines when extruding. Either add mates (preferred)or fix it until it's black (last resort)
Whole process alternative:
- Use the toolbox .
Very elegant solution! Thanks!
