Feature-Based Definition of Bevel Gears
|Publication Date:||1 October 1995|
The complex shape of a bevel gear tooth surface must be defined mathematically for the CMM, but the mathematical definition tends to be difficult for direct use in gear design and manufacture. The mathematical definition may be condensed into a "feature-based" definition which is more convenient for gear design and manufacture. The feature-based definition may easily be described on the engineering drawings and toleranced. Development and application of the feature-based definition is described.
