Modeling Gears with Assembly Groups in KISSsoft
November 28, 2018
In the 03/2018 release of KISSsys, you have the option of “group-based modeling”. Using it, individual finished assemblies can now be extracted from existing gear designs and then combined with other groups. For example, a shaft can be cut into parts at any point and then merged together with a different shaft in a different assembly (e.g. the shaft from a Ravigneaux set).
Recurring assemblies are also offered as basic structures in a “Group Box” library. Company-specific gear components are also created and saved in this Group Box through simple modifications. This approach to modeling gear constructions in KISSsys simplifies and accelerates the entire development process. You can use this function with the KISSsys basic package (SYS).
