i am not able to give a surface constraints between to tooth surface of gear and pinion in assembly mode,i used a stp file as a reference converted to part file

i am trying to make a assembly with a pinion and gear, mounting distance and offset is set as per requirement, but i am not able to create a surface to surface constraints between tooth profiles of gear and pinion.

    If you're using Kinematics, just setup a Gear Joint between the two parts.

    If you're not using Kinematics and only working with Assembly Design, than I would add the pitch diameter circles to both gears and constrain the circles tangent to each other. The tooth profile geometry is too complex to build constrains off of.

Add your answer to: "i am not able to give a surface constraints between to tooth surface of gear and pinion in assembly mode,i used a stp file as a reference converted to part file "
