  • DataNumber Of Teeth: Number of teeth
  • DataSprocket Reference: The sprocket type. A list of sprocket definitions. introduced in version 0.20 The list includes ANSI and ISO-norms as well as some bicycle and motorcycle sprocket definitions.
  • DataPitch: Distance between two teeth
  • DataRoller Diameter: Diameter of the chain rollers the sprocket is designed for
  • DataThickness:The principal thickness of the sprocket. Note: The sprocket cannot just be padded with this thickness because the teeth have side chamfers. Therefore look at the sprocket definition to model a valid 3D sprocket. introduced in version 0.20
