Wind Turbine Gearbox

Wind Turbine Gearbox

This is my rendition of a wind turbine gearbox. I put this together from photos of a scrapped gearbox, some basic dimensions on height, width and length and some web research on the basics of wind turbine gear trains. The gears are modified versions of ones I downloaded from the 3D warehouse. Thanks to the folks that shared these designs. Oh yes...there's a reason behind why I created this drawing and it's not because I have a passion for gearboxes. Most of the stuff I've done to date has been architectural, furniture, etc. I wanted to do something mechanical. Eventually I'd like to download the Sketchup Physics plug in to try to create something that I can animate. I need to learn how to make my own gears first. If there's anyone out there that would like to share a helical ring gear design, I'd appreciate it. Lastly, there's lots of detail inside the gearbox if you take the time to take it apart piece by piece. #gearbox #gears #green_power #helical_gears #planet_gears #Wind_turbine
