Im currently in one of my aerospace deaign classes and they have asked me to model a complex gear for a presentation and analysis.
Attached is the gear. It does not need to be 100% to standard in the visual. I can do all the math, safety factors, and analysis by hand since that is the assignment. They just need a decent 3d visual and yes it has to be modeled. Thats part of the design.
Everything is simple, except the teeth that face in. I do not know where to even begin for this. The pinion gear that mates with the gear in the photo is a worm gear. 50:1. IE, i spin the worm gear 50 times and the driven gear rotates one revolution.
