Geometric Model of the Shaping of the Working Surfaces of the Bevel Gear Elements
A method of solid-state geometric modeling of technological processes of shaping of spatial gears in 3D space is proposed. Working and transition surfaces of the teeth are formed as envelopes of the generating surface of the tool. The result is the final shape of the tooth surfaces in the form of accurate computerized solid models. A block diagram and an example of 'computer cutting' of a bevel gear are given.
