MetadataShow full item record
An interactive program is presented which enhances the design of external spur gears cut by a hob. The program code calculates the geometry of an involute spur gear with trochoidal fillets and then uses the Graphical Kernel System (GKS), CADAM, and MOVIE.BYU to represent and display the gear. GKS, an international standard, is used to represent the gear in two dimensions; while the CAD/CAM system CADAM and the software package MOVIE.BYU accurately create wireframe geometric design models in three dimensions. Examples of the input parameters needed and each of the software packages in use are shown and explained.
