In this tutorial, we’ll create a basic spur gear using SolidWorks. The main tools we’ll be using here to create the gear are Extrude Boss, Circular Pattern, Extrude Cut, and Fillet. When we’re done, we’ll have a spur gear that you can easily modify and work with.
In technology, the word gear is used to designate a machine element having a purpose of transmitting/receiving power and motion from/to a rotating shaft by means of progressive engagement of their edges called teeth. In mechanical engineering, gears are generally used for power transmission and they are
