This set of examples shows you how to create parameterized parts for Simscape Multibody and example MATLAB scripts for defining general extrusions. The parts have been used in a wide range of examples to show how these blocks enable you to rapidly model mechanisms. Within the library are a set of gear assemblies. The parameterized gear assemblies group the required blocks together and parameterize them so that frames are always positioned and oriented correctly.
Please read the README.txt file to get started.

Added R2017b version with cone part and extrusion script, and a sphere part.
Added parameter "Relative Position (B to F)" to Rod part. Permits changing direction of rod without rewiring diagram.
Added extrusion script for conical frustum (cone), parameterized cone part, parameterized sphere part.
Fixed broken link.
Added R17a version. Absorbed Simscape Multibody Gearset Library, updated extrusion scripts, added many examples.
Fixed broken hyperlink in submission description.
Added version for R2016a, including a few small fixes to the extrusion scripts.
Fixed webinar link.
Updated link to video in "Description" field. No changes to files in submission.
Updated for R2013a. Added examples and extrusion scripts for gears.
Added scripts to create gears (external and internal), as well as a planetary gear and rack-and-pinion models.
