OKAY Now that I have figured out that I wasn't picking the profile button to make a spur gear. Can someone explain to me the data you are required to input to build the gear? I am working with Autocad Mechanical 2012. I was looking for a tutorial that might have shown how it is used. No such luck. The Addendum Coefficient - hap* & Dedendum Coefficient - hfp* are the things I am not comprehending. I started with a standard gear and then modified it for my situation. What is the "basic rack reference line"?
