I try to make a gear mate, round gear to round gear is OK, but my case is a linear gear with a round gear (see attached), anybody know how to make this gear assembly work or use some alternative mathods?
Thank you very much
Hello. Under Mechanical Mates there is a Rack and Pinion mate. It is easier to make the mate work if there is a visible sketch for the pinion pitch diameter in the round gear. Also, set the gear teeth so they look the way you want them to before making the mate - SW isn't going to "mesh" the gears - the setup you have in the pic is perfect.
I checked SW help manu under "rack & pinion mates" , it is same as my case, I didn't know SW has another mate option for gear.
