I'm looking for a tool I can use to design and model a small gearbox. I
need to both find a way to fit all the bits together and to spin various
input/output shafts and watch what happens.
I'm not particularly into CAD (Sketchup/photoshop is more me when it
comes to images) but I do program C++ and Java for a living, so the macro
side of it doesn't daunt me *too* much.
What I really want to know is what tool(s) are suitable for doing this?
Is it an expert only job or could I get into it without too much trouble?
