Removing Interference Material in Gear Assembly

Question asked by Matthew Wright on Jan 21, 2015

Hello all,

I've got a worm and wheel in an assembly with a gear mate. I would like to know if it is possible to step the wheel round in say 5degrees and remove the material from the wheel using the worm as it interferes. I have tried using the Cavity tool but when the wheel is moved the Cavity feature updates and so does the cut. The best result would be a contiunous cut from all the interference as the "resolution" at 5degree steps would be abit rough.


Attached is the assembly.
