    Circular Pitch Gears

    Mike Sherman

      I have been given the task of creating 1/8"C.P "Circluar Pitch" gears. I know that it is a very uncommon gear type and alot of people haven't heard of it.

      Here is a link that explains C.P versus D.P "Diameter Pitch" http://www.flexoexchange.com/gorilla/cpdp_article.html

      My questions are;

      What are the equations that drive the tooth profile of a C.P gear?

      What is the best method of modeling gears in SW?

      Is SolidWorks ever going incorporate to  a "Gear Generator" like Inventor has?

       

      Thank you to everyone that responds!
