Create Standard and Non-Standard Gear Components

Multiple gears created as a single SOLIDWORKS part

GearTeq is a gear component add-in for SOLIDWORKS that helps users create standard and non-standard gear components. It uses assembly positions so components can be used in multiple locations and assemblies. 

GearTeq aims to provide some of the functionality you have become accustomed to in your SOLIDWORKS CAD system. With CAD like features, you can view components with drag, rotate and multiple zoom options. You can also drive the components for immediate animation. 

Top Features of GearTeq Include

  • Face gears, axis coincident and at 90 degrees
  • New worm wheel tooth generation that is more accurate and faster than the previous "advanced method" in earlier releases
  • Test radius inspection for spur gears
  • XYZ surface text file creation for those using other CAD systems
  • Uses assembly positions so components can be used in multiple locations and assemblies
  • Lock components using an integer password to prevent unwanted changes
  • A description of each parameter is in the lower section of the property grid
  • Involute profile modification using linear or parabolic deviation for spur and helical gears
  • Spiral tooth generating diameter can be specified for the Gleason standard
  • Lead crowning on spur, bevel and worm gears
  • Easier methods to swap between components and assembly positions
  • Work on Multiple types of components in the same assembly
  • See any changes to the geometry instantly on the display window
  • Multiple gears created as a single CAD part
  • Internal splines can be used as a bore on all components
  • Create data sheets using Excel or text files
  • Automatic balance of addendum modification for spur and helical gears
  • An easy to use sizing for standard spur gears
  • Modifying CAD parts created by GearTeq is very easy
  • Automatically create assemblies in SOLIDWORKS with proper mating
  • Ten standard planetary gear systems are available with a few clicks
  • High ratio cycloid set
  • On screen animations to help you visualize the working gears
  • Warnings when GearTeq detects something in your design that may not be proper
  • 3D wire frame with some surface shading
  • Create XY outputs of the involute points in Excel and text files
  • Create additional tooth profiles that take into consideration the shrinkage of molded plastic gear teeth
  • Deviation chart for DIN splines, hub space width/shaft tooth thickness fit
