SolidWorks worm reducer analysis tutorial needed

  1. Nov 29, 2015 #1
    I've calculated my gear ratio to be 1:27 and the most suitable reducer for it would be a worm drive.
    I couldn't find any descriptive tutorials to do the mesh and perform constructional analysis of the gears on SolidWorks. Can you help me?

    What you're describing might take an entire college-level course of study. Is this being done for a senior design project?

    Really? Is it that complex? I just thought to design a reducer to finish up my assembly robot arm.
