The default motionvalues at the output of the Gearing FB are equal to its input motionvalues.
You can edit three parameters in the Gearing FB dialogbox to edit its output. The three parameters apply to a linear equation:
Output = (a × (input + b) + c)
The 'Gearing Ratio Parameter, a, can be entered as a rational number [a ratio of two numbers to give, e.g.: 355/113] or as an irrational number [e.g.: pi].

STEP 2: Open the Gearing FB dialogbox:

Default output: 
The default output from the Gearing FB is equal to its input. 

Output Function: 
It has three parameters, which specify a simple linear equation function.

Ratio and Phase Gearing Ratio Multiply the result of (Input+ ) by this parameter GearingRatio [See Irrational and Ratio Ratio radio buttons below]. Add after Gear Ratio Add this parameter to the result of [ × (Input+ )] Add before Gear Ratio Add this parameter directly to the input : (Input+) Rational Gear You can enter Gearing Ratio in two different ways.

The ratio of InputPulley / OutputPulley shows in the Gearing Ratio as a 'ReadOnly' parameter. Notes: Gearing Ratio [ignoring the other two parameters] 1 < Gearing Ratio < 1 ; the output is 'stepped down' [becomes less than the input] Gearing Ratio < 0 ; the output is opposite to [negative of] the input. Gearing Ratio = 1 ; the output is equal to the input Gearing Ratio =1 ; the output is equal, but the opposite to [negative of] the input TopTips:
