    Default how to transform 2D drawing into 3D Spiral Bevel Gear?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello!
    I have the attached drawing of spiral bevel gears;
    MBSG2-2040L.dwg

    it has been taken from this site
    http://www.qtcgears.com/KHK/newgears/KHK206.html

    how do I transform it into a 3d structure from that 2d drawing?
    is all the needed information comprised in it?
    I can not figure out the shape of the teeth.
    There is also a 3d version of the gears for autodesk inventor; is there a way I could transform that into an autocad 2011 compatible version (I don't know much about autodesk inventor ).
    Thank you !

    there is also a .dxf version which shows an autocad drawing but it is still 2d and I cannot upload it as it is larger than the permitted size

    Inventor can be used to save as a dwg 3d solid.
    Do you have Inventor? If so, what version (in later versions it is Save Copy as type *.dwg). In earlier versions there was a Save as DWG solids I think under Tools or Manage, but don't remember exactly where. Another option in Inventor would be to Save Copy as Type ACIS (*.sat) and then use the acisin command in AutoCAD.
