How to design gear tooth runout with a helical profile

By Brittany Bakan on 24 Sep 20:48 2 answers 871 views 0 comments

I designed a pinion with a gear profile and just made a wide u shaped path for my cut to follow, however I am not sure how to do this if I have a helical gear. I have seen similar done in Inventor but I need to know if its possible to do a similar thing in SolidWorks or if SolidWorks has its own way to do a similar process.

It should look something like this.
