Python library for gear transmission design

Project description

Python library for design of spur and helical gears transmissions


the project is on pypi server for installation use:

pip install python-gearbox

for manual installation download the last release from:

python install

make shure you have installed all dependencies “jinja2, numpy and scipy”


  • Gear stresses calculation using AGMA-2101 D04 and ISO-6336 standards
  • Export 2D and 3D one tooth geometrical models, to MATLAB/COMSOL for spur and helical gears
  • Export 2D and 3D one tooth geometrical models, to ABAQUS-CAE only for spur gears
  • Export 2D and 3D one tooth geometrical models, to ANSYS only for spur gears

Next Releases

  • Add the export capabilities for helical gears in ANSYS and ABAQUS-CAE softwares
  • Optimization of the profile shift modification
