Gear Models in 3D
Gear Models in 3D

11 September 2018


The manufacturing of complex workpieces, such as gears on five-axis milling machines, has increasingly established itself as an alternative production process. Precise 3D data is a requirement for this type of production. KISSsoft can output exact 3D models, which can then undergo further processing with CAD and/or CAM software.

Measurement grid reports have been provided to help you measure the topology of the flank and root areas of the toothing. These grids are output directly in the correct format for Klingelnberg or Gleason measuring machines. The measurement grid calculation can be called up for cylindrical gears, helical gears, face gears, worm wheels, and involute splines (module ZZ5). The 3D models in KISSsoft are available in both STEP and Parasolid formats. 
The models can also be exported as individual tooth forms for CAM generation (module CB1). You can find more detailed information on this topic in the "Gear Models in 3D" flyer, or participate in our Calculation of gears, shaft bearings, drives with GPK introductory training course from November 6 to 8, 2018 in Bubikon, Switzerland. PRODUCTS *KISSsoft is a program for sizing, optimizing and recalculating designs for machine components such as gears, shafts and bearings, screws, springs, joining elements and belts. The product can also be integrated in all popular CAD programs.
*KISSsys is a software add-on for KISSsoft that allows users to model transmissions and drive trains. *GPK is a program based on KISSsys used for dimensioning and optimising transmissions. ENGINEERING & CONSULTING We provide these services to help you in your efforts to design marketable products that can be produced economically. Our services include developing suggestions and providing expert opinions that are perfectly tailored to your unique situation.
