Computer Aided Gear Design - From Design Concept to Detailed Drawing 881838
The objective of this paper is to show the gains in productivity and accuracy from the use of the computer in the gear design process. These gains are not limited to the initial concept and analysis stages, but also are applied to the design fine tuning and final drawing stages.
This is done by the use of programs running on a number of computers. These programs range from initial design routines through to the generation of the final drawing. Interfacing programs must share a common database throughout all stages of the design process to stream line the procedure.
