ummm..... i'm not sure about using relations. you could always use var sec sweep to create one tooth, then pattern it around the disk to form all the teeth. hope this helps.

I would make the generic gear as above and then modify it to add relations. The help files are pretty complete about how to create relations.

I am not sure what you are attempting to do but have you considered family tables as well as relations?

helllo Friends,

I dont know, my method is right or wrong. I used to model the gear as follows:

1. model one tooth and patter to number of teeth.

2.Tweek>Toroidal bend.

3. U will get a gear and no material will inside. so after that simple revolve or protude or simply fill the space.

I have modeled spar, helical and bevel gear also through this method.

I request you please let me know, my method is correct or wrong.

thank you
