GUI for for the development of gear (internal and external)

GUI for for the development of gear (internal and external)

With the rise of additive manufacturing and increased use of 2D manufacturing processes, such as waterjet cutting, PTC really needs to step up and create an intuitive and efficient process for creating gears using available gear data like the Machinery's Handbook and gear data generator software.

 

PTC, please develop a GUI for for the development of gears, spur, spline, helix, etc., both internal and external.

Already today these things can be done resorting to various complex relations and features.
A little bit simplicity would be grateful and a specific toolkit I think is a good thing.

Did you already looked into the solution from KISS-SOFT? You can create your gears with a GUI and then bring them through the Creo Interface to CAD. http://kisssoft.ch/english/products/kisssoft.php

I looked at KISSSoft, but I couldn't see a way to make an internal spline. Also, after I installed it, I didn't see any integration with Creo other than export/import. Even on their website, they don't show an integrated tab/dialog box, like some of the others, it's just the file opened in Creo.

I also looked at kisssoft but it didn't satisfy me. It's not an integrated software with Creo.
I think that a so "mechanical oriented" CAD like should have special tools like this for springs, gears and belt.

I forwarded your request/questions to KISSSOFT due to they are part of our Company since this Year. Let's see with what they come up.
