GearTrax

GearTrax™ provides the designer with an easy to use tool for creating solid models of drive components. Create spur, helical, straight bevel and involute splines with true involute tooth profiles.

GearTrax™ is intuitively easy to use for the designer with limited gear experience yet powerful enough for the gear expert. The animation window shows the spur/helical gear mesh which updates as the data is changed. It is extremely useful in understanding how changes to the gear parameters reflects on the gear mesh.

GearTrax™ is more than a library program.  Each part model is created with it's specific requirements just as a designer would, but rather than taking hours or days, the part is created in seconds.  GearTrax creates solid models of spur and helical gears, bevel gears, worm gears, involute splines, timing belt pulleys, chain sprockets and V-belt pulleys.  GearTrax™ also integrates with Excel to create data sheets.

Some important information about GearTrax
- Involute splines.What are involute splines?Involute splines are commonly used to attach a gear to a shaft. Normally, involute splines are made in pairs, an external spline and an internal spline.
- Internal gears. Creating internal gear sets has been improved with GearTrax.It is easy to create a set of gears, one internal and one pinion gear as a matched set.
- A spur gear tooth and involute spline tooth geometry can now be added to any sketch in SolidWorks.This makes it very easy to add gear teeth to any part or multiple teeth geometry to a single part.
- Spur and helical gear teeth are cut-extruded rather than the tooth feature boss-extruded on a base feature. A number of customers asked for this so they could suppress the tooth pattern and still have the gear "blank" to check for interference. Also, some thought it would nice if the gear model more resembled the manufacturing process.
- Adding mates to GearTrax products is now much simpler.All products are created with the center of the gear, pulley etc., being on a plane.In other words, the length of the belt or chain center will now be centered on a plane.This is a big improvement for mating parts in an assembly.
- GearTrax can be licensed over a network. We use a NetHASP by Aladdin Knowledge Systems Ltd. Visit www.aks.com for more information about this product.The hasp (dongle) may be installed on any computer (it does not need to be a server) on the network.As long as this computer is running with a small program, all the computers on the network will have access to the license manager.

"GearTrax is a great addition to my tools. I have saved more time than I care to think of had I not had this available. I'm designing a remote control car right now, and I don't even think about the gear design portion of this. It's about as intuitive as it could be, and with the animation, fantastic. "
