Geared-Rocker Part

A Geared-Rocker Part is a kinematically-defined Part.

MechDesigner derives the motion for the Geared-Rocker Part from the:

1.Motion of the Driving-Part, relative to the Line-of-centers between the two Gears

The Input Gear is a kinematically-defined Part and also a Rotating-Part.

2.The number-of-teeth on each Gear

3.Mesh of the Gear-Pair: Internal or External Mesh.

You must define the number-of-gear teeth and mesh in the Gear-Pair dialog-box.
