Creating a worm gear by measurments (diameter,length)

Hello everyone,


is there a tool to create worm gears by entering measurments like the diameter of the gear, diameter of the pivot and so on? In the worm creation tool in the engineering reference I can only enter load data, but no direct measurements as far as I can see. The worm gear I want to design will be under almost no load, as it will be used to control the static angle of a hinge-like structure. If I use the worm gear tool the gear is always much too large for my application.

I don't know of a tool but the models that are created are nicely parameterized.

You might be able to configure it with the Variable Table after it's created.
