To get this script to work for Maya 8

Execute the script DVY_Gears.mel
Execute the command DVY_Gears

I tried to put the script on the shelf, didn't work for me, locks up my computer for 15 secs.
Lack of information on what script to execute and what command to execute was very upsetting.

Great scripts! even tho I'm not a technical artist by trade, your scripts (same for chains script)are a time saver for fantasy and scifi work as well... very handy for the CGS steampunk challenge ;)

working fine so far, the gears are not as picture'd,
will need to swap out and recreate all the geometry later, but it will save time in layout.

Davvey

Just discovered this today.

I am using it in Maya 2011 but I am a relative newcomer to the Maya.

Your script is a super add on for some work I am doing.

But I have one question - Is there anyway of putting 2 or more gears (for example) into the scene and connecting then in such a way that when I rotate 1 of then using the Rotate tool, the others will rotate as well?

I have parented 2 gears but then they rotate around each other and not around their individual centre points. I was looking for a tutorial on this sort of thing but to no avail.

Any help greatly appreciated.
