In this tutorial, you will learn how to model a planetary gear drive with Blender 3D, and test it with Blender’s Rigid Body Physics engine. The gears feature involute tooth profiles and herringbone shapes. We recommend watching our Involute Gear tutorial at https://youtu.be/DqBOva04lcE first.
The end result of this tutorial, a .blend file containing the working simulation of a planetary mechanism, can be downloaded from http://www.otvinta.com/tutorial04.html.
