    gear design software

    hello is there any software which will calculate how to manufacture gears ? with correction factor, pitch, centres etc

    I have a gear train with 4 gears located. but 3 of the gears will hae different teeth counts and will be interchangeable.
    i.e first gear = 17,18,19 teeth. 2nd gear 58t, 59t 60t.

    each gear there needs to be interchangeable.

    any help would be appreciated.

    Typically, you would purchase/use a gear cutting tool that has been designed and manufactured to create the geometry to the AGMA tolerance specification.

    Search: "Hobbing manufacturing" or "Gear cutter tools"
    Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
