Tech Tip: Let's Build a Sprocket

Hi.  I know you may download your sprocket models from vendors like Martin.  But never-the-less, it's a great model to explore when you are trying to hone your CAD skills.  

We made a sprocket tutorial.  It highlights some cool tricks when dealing with revolved parts, intricate patterns, and supporting documentation.  Check out the video and model:

    Now that's what I call a keeper. A complete, customisable sprocket building facility, self-explanatory and self documenting, accessible to and usable from any computer which can reach the web. And the price is right...

    Thanks a bunch, Darren.  Once Onshape is a serious contender in performance and productivity as well as capability, I can see myself using this as a powerful demonstration to some powerful people in CAD decision-making in the engineering industry.
