Hi all,


    Having a doubt realted to motion studies when applied to basic engineering.


In lead screw , Lead disance = Pitch x No: of starts.


When creating solidworks motion using screw mate how  one revolution can be acheived for different lead distance .


Pls see the attached animation where i use a typical lead screw. ( used for driving two gears forward and reverse, one at a time.)

I have achieved one revolution with lead distance  50 mm and 25 mm . How this is possible when the pitch is 50mm.
