I'm trying to model a ball gear (not a worm gear) in blender, like the one in this picture.

enter image description here

I have tried using the worm gear from the extra objects add on, but I can't get it to look right. Can anyone give me some tips?

Here is what I have been able to make so far: The teeth don't look right

Consider a Curve Modifier and Array. Similar to winding cable around a spindle.


enter image description here

  • Curve Above.

enter image description here

  • Mesh Component Selected. Modifiers Array and Curve.
