Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating additional gears, part of Modeling a Motorcycle Engine with SOLIDWORKS.
Next, we are going to use the previous sprocket…and a configuration to create the large sprocket…for our chain assembly.…Now, we'll be getting to assemblies…in chapter three of our project.…For now, do a Save As Copy and open…and name the file Sprocket Final Configs.…And go ahead and save that.…Let's start by adding a new configuration.…
Select the Configuration Manager.…We will right-click on the part name…and select the Add Configuration command.…Let's name it Large Sprocket…and then we'll say OK to that.…This configuration is now automatically activated for us…and to easily access the features,…we will split our Feature Manager.…Now, click on the Cut Extrude1 feature,…so we can see the dimensions in the Graphics view…and let's change the dimension to thirteen millimeters.…
Sketch a circle on the front face of Boss Extrude3,…which we will use for a boss extrusion.…And let's offset it five millimeters…from Cut Extrude1's edge.…Also, let's then do a Convert Entities on the same inch…and let's go ahead and extrude this twenty-four millimeters.…
