I am trying to do a simulation of two face gears meshing together to create a fixture when bolted together. There are 72 teeth,  allowing 5 degree increments when unbolted. I'm trying to figure out how to create a contact between the gear teeth to see if they will be strong enough. I'm fairly new to SolidWorks Simulation. I've tried automatically finding contact sets, but it doesn't seem to find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

Peter
