    Exclamation Gear Design

    i know i will probably be tarred and feathered for asking this question in the wrong forum but the inventor forum is locked... i am trying to extrude a gear in inventor 9. the dimensions are fine before array, but after array the auto dimension is showing one dimension missing. and when i try to select for extrusion i cannot select anything. i'm sure the geometry is correct. what am i doing wrong? any ideas?

    maybe there is some format for designing gears in inventor?

    thanks

    Default Re: Gear Design

    This link suggests your gears should be
    designed in one of the two shaft generator tools.

    This link is a host of tutorials for you, none appear to be
    specific towards gears.

    The inventor forum is not locked. There is no general inventor forum - there are sub forums, and those are all open. Let me know where you want this post, and I will be glad to move it to the correct forum - and for the record no one has ever been tarred or feathered for posting to the wrong forum - only whipped lightly with a cooked noodle
