Four-Sided Bevel Gear Assembly Testrig
This example models four bevel gears connected in a closed loop. The necessary blocks for a bevel gear assembly are contained in a masked subsystem with the key parameters exposed in a dialog box.
Bevel Gear 4x Closed Assembly Subsystem
Bevel Gear 4x Closed Assembly Constraints Subsystem
The Bevel Gear Constraint requires that the rest of the mechanism hold the two frames to which it is connected in alignment. This subsystem has the necessary constraints and parameterized Rigid Transform to hold the frames in the right position and orientation.
