Gear drives are the most important mechanisms in transmitting mechanical power compromising several cost effectiveness and engineering advantages. Most of the undergraduate level-engineering design courses detail the design, assembly, and classification of gear drive systems. So many universities also have a separate course for the advanced design, analysis and performance of the gears at the graduate level.

With the aid of powerful computers, many software systems are developed for design and analysis of gears. The processes from design to manufacturing of gears are automated with the developed CAD/CAM systems. The developed programs can also be used in the production of visual materials in education.

The objective of this study is to prepare visual gear design materials for Machine Design courses and establish a design system in CAD laboratory, so that the students can run the program with their own design parameters.
