3D Tutorial 03: How to Model Bevel Gear Drive in Blender


Bevel gears are gears with intersecting shafts. The wheels in a bevel gear drive are usually mounted on shafts intersecting at 90°, but can be designed to work at other angles as well.

In the following tutorial, you will learn how to design a bevel gear pair with involute tooth profiles, curved teeth and shafts intersecting at an arbitrary angle in just a few minutes. Tooth profiles and other useful parameters are obtained from the bevel gear calculator we have developed.
