Drawing Bevel Gears

Hey Guys,

 

I am trying to draw a bevel gears from drawings, one is a scroll plate and the others are gears with a key hole. As you can see in the following attachment.

 

My question is how do you draw bevel gears on the face of the scroll plate and the cylindrical face of the other 3 gears?

 

Cheers

Then simply make the new gears.

Right click and Open.

Finish the desired geometry.

I would start with the Gear Generator Design Accelerator in Inventor assembly environment.

Hey, thanks for the quick reply.

 

I've tried playing around with the Gear Generator Design Acceerator, but it always outputs new gears rather than making the face of the components into the gears. (See image).

 

Can you possibly guide me through how to use the Gear Generator Design Accelerator to get it to work?
