Ok my question? Is it open source? I don't think because it's from UGS.

Nope. However you said "I want to cooperate with CAD developers".

One thing you nculd do would be to get an academic license for a CAD product
like Solid Edge and use their API create the gears.
I wan't be independent form commercial CAD's because they want to much money
for their applications.
That's why the task is so complicated.

Yes, it is a complicated task, which is why the CAD vendors want so much
money for their applications.

Think they would be good, highly accurate, gear forms?
Have the core mathematics of the shape of the surfaces needed?

I sort of suspect that some of the basics of the problems have not
yet been grasped.
And even the best of NURBS based CAD or CAD/CAM systems
have certain basic limitations.

First I wil try to fin out what open office offers.
I'm becoming more and more iterested in http://www.opencascade.com
The CD with docementation, source and examples for their libraries costs
80?.
Maybe it's not expensive for such amount of knowledge, but for me it is
some.
Fortunately you can download it also. So I will spend some time to get it.


Thank you all for good discusion.
I hoope we will return to it soon.

There much good work to do :)
