Gear ufunc program

From one of the old threads on gears, John Baker shared these programs.  The GRIP I got to run, but not the user function.  What is the trick?

 

I've gone File, Execute, NX Open, browse to the .dll, and I am greeted with this error:

Any newer gear programs out there?  @FrankSwinks ever finish his?

Guessing...

The ufunc progam is not compiled/linked for your version of NX.

GRIP has been on life support for so long that old GRX files will (usually) still work.

Re: Gear ufunc program

There is a gear program in the GTAC knowledge center (a.k.a. UGANSWER). This would be a much more modern starting point than either grip or user function.   https://solutions.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/view.php?sort=desc&q=gear&dt=nx-api&file_t...

Re: Gear ufunc program

Yes I am still working on a much updated spur gear program. It will include trochoid fillet and addendum modification. Unfortunately my computer is in for repair/service so I cannot do anything at this time.

My money is on "operator error", but I didn't have much luck.  I ran the Gear.vb as a journal, and got a few errors.  Does it need to be compiled for Win64, or?

Dave -

Did you download the ZIP file and read the "read me.pdf"?

Yeah, but I never got the GUI to input anything, just the errors.

Do you have a SNAP and blockstyler license? It looks like they will be required to run the code.

I don't see anything about SNAP in our configuration report.

Attached is an update for gear_model2.  This is built for NX9 and has been signed.  It does need to have the dialog file correctly located.  Because it is only an update for the old program it does not include the features I am currently working on.

 

Hope this is of some use.
