Rotating mate around moving axis in Onshape

18hoosti218hoosti2 Member Posts: 2
Dear Onshape community, we have come across a difficult mating assembly that we are having trouble working out. We need a bevel gear to rotate about a stationary Z axis as well as an axis defined by it's center. (to simulate the smaller gear "walking" around in a circle around the larger, stationary gear. Thanks for your help! and Wash Your Hands!

    Yqu should be able to to add two gear relations there.

    One between the pinion and lower gear, and another for the upper gear.

    I couldn't get the pinion to rotate freely on my phone. You may have too many have it over mated. Or my phone is slow... I can look at it closer when I get on my computer
