    Assembling chain and gear, help

    Shmulik E

      Hello,

      i am using solidworks 2015.
      I have created 2 gears and a belt. and i have a chain all around the gear following the belt.

      the 2 gears are at ration 1:1 and are moving perfectly and sycronized wich each other

       

      I am trying to move the chain by rotating the gear.
      so when i am roatating the gear the chain will go all aroud following the belt.
      i treid to follow that tutorial: Tech Tip: SOLIDWORKS 2015 Tutorial - Advancing Advanced & Mechanical Mates - YouTube

      when the link that i mated to the gear is close to the gear it works good.but as the link going away from the gear the ration between them becoming worse.
