Gear Sketch Generator

Greetings everyone.
I'm designing some specialized parts involving involute gears. I'm looking for a way (or utility) for SolidWorks 2013 users to generate gear profiles within a sketch. I'm familiar with gears being imported from the toolbox, but haven't been able to find out how to generate just the sketch of the gear profile.

Thanks,
SM

Hi! You could use the free web app at www.me-bac.com to create the profile of a spur gear (standard and corrected) and download the DXF profile.

With the DXF profile of the gear, you could import it in a Solidwork sketch. It works better than a commercial toolbox!!! :rolleyes:
