Hello all, Can anyone guide me how to go about designing a spur gear and rack? Here is what I have so far in Inventor Pro 2009: - A cylinder (this will be the gear) - A square rod (this will be the rack) - Tangent constraint between cylinder and rod. - In Dynamic simulation, I produced a rolling joint. Now when I want to create the gears using design accelerator, how do I specify the rod as the 2nd component? I do not have that option. I am new to inventor and being an electrical engineer who does not know much about gears is not helping either. Any hints or pointers appreciated. Thank you for your time and help. A
