Title: Please help with them bevels
Post by: sharkipe on May 01, 2016, 04:03:06 AM
Gentlemen, I am new to the forum and gears. Just purchased Gearotic 2 and I struggle with bevels right from the start. It appears that I am the thickest person on earth. Every time I  "create" any bevel gear and press the button: "Send to four axes" - system display message - Object ignored as non 4th axis object.
When I make an attempt to cut straight bevel on 3 axis, system respond with - "Engraving not released"
I also fail to unearth method of changing coordinat e system( Z tool approach) to the stock.
Any assistanc e with the matter will be highly appreciat ed.

Hi:

  Bevels cannot be machined. They remain impossibl e to do as of yet. They exist for simulatio n or 3d printing, but cannot be sent to the 4th axis module or the 2.5D module.

Thank you for your quick reply. I was under  delusion that it's possible. Hopefully somewhere in future it will happen.

Hi:

 I do plan to, but likely as an engraving option on a raster type of sweep of some sort..

Reading the thread on bevel discussio ns I was under the impressio n that the software was there. Now I guess
that's why I don't see it when I open Gearotic program.
Rats, that's what I wanted to do next. Oh well I guess I will have to find a different way to do that.

Bruce:

 Yeah, bevels can be hard. You can try it with the STL output, load it into somethign liek vectric and try an engraving,
I have seen it done that way, but its a slow way to cut.. I havent personall y made any..

Hi:

 I answered on the other thread. I dont see any thing coming out for bevels in future other than perhaps better 3d models of them ,
which I do have planned. I hope to redo all the gear modeling to better standards for 3d printing as well as add worm gears
,acme screws and such. Bevels have always been a problem, they require a pretty special machine effective ly and I
just dont see any solution as yet that makes sense.
