Interactive gear check

    That must be a fantastic scan to have the resolution and overall accuracy to check a gear tooth !

    However, within DSM there are no motion tools to syncronise moving parts for an analytical analysis. There's a forum user ( Me Here) who's done and knows much about gears with moving gifs etc. He's the expert on this matter.

    Thanks a lot Tim.
    There are some nice scanners out there today .... pricey, but nice, with accuracy of 0.02mm achievable.

    It is possible to do this with DSM. See for an example.

    It is a mostly manual process that involved rotating one gear a little (0.5° or so) and then the other by an eqivalent amount subject to the gear ratio, whilst having Display(tab)->display(panel)->Show->Body intererence checked.

    If the planned Python integration to DSM ever comes to fruition, and isn't a stupidly costly Add-on, this would get much easier.
