I received the crown shape as an IGES file for which I am to generate the rest of this gear from.
Any ideas for how I could fill in the tooth. The filled surface command returned a distorted radial shape.
Yes. Make one and use Circular Pattern
Now correct version
Attach your *.sldprt file here (and perhaps the original IGES file).
Maybe command... Replace Face?
If width of crown is to small you can extend it (use Extend Surface command)
As yiu can see in this section. I am able to fake it to make the teeth look closed but unless they become solid I will not be able to do too much with it. Any ideas how to fill those regions in? Part is attached.
Can you attach IGES?
..would create/revolve your blank material first and then use your "Surface-Import" as a cut tool and pattern that cut.
You might export your original to .step then, patch it hen you re-import it solidworks. SW has a pretty cool gap repair function the does pretty good most the time
I am unable to attach the file because it is too large.
Very nice. Yes. Gears, with accurate geometry, can sometime be astronomically large. I tend to define the spur teeth with a spline to keep the file size lower but IGES and SW don't play well together.
Sorry. Here is the iges
From the topology of the surface (from the IGES file) it appears that the center is like in my image. The side edges fit into the circles. You (in my opinion) turned your teeth away.
On this way - like you see - no problems
I should have mentioned before. Sorry. The IGES file is the left and right tooth SPACE for a crown and they are disconnected.
Initially I joined those into a single surface near the base. I circular rotated 39x.
Perhaps I should have made a single (360°/39) radial copy into a solid before all of that?
jest dobre. jenkuye! sorry bad spelling.
Your welcome. Ye,,, We do it!
circle these two sides. (up to body) then use circular pattern.
