I wrote a script to create gear wheels.

Here you can see a picture .

And if you like, an animated scene.

Edit: I have to disappoint you, The script to generate gear wheels is not in the scene. You only find the animation.

Wow Wigand! this is great! :banana:

By the way, i am currently designing a car mechanism in tS (university project) and the script for generating the gear wheels would come REALLY handy in this moment, could you upload it? pleeeeeeeeeaaaassssssssssssssssssssssssssseeee :)

The animation of the gears is awesome! Does the script allow to create the system shown there? and calculate their rotational speeds and teeth number?? (amongst many other possible "madeable" questions :D )

Hi Steinie! Yes, that's part of the design :) I have to make a mechanically controlled car that picks up some objects along a certain track, turns back and places them in a basket.

The only electrical part that it can have is the engine, for the rest, only mechanical systems are allowed (engines, cams, etc...).

And as always I'm using tS for the design :D it's so easy to present the 3d sketches in tS (And the finished designs also!) :D and with the realtime viewer i can manipulate, animate, move the camera and focus in specific places as i make my exposition.

(I know that there's people that is not so fond of the realtime player, but for me it is a really useful tool!)
