This is a quote from a HEXAGON's web page at: http://hexagon.de/zar1_e.htm
DXF and IGES interfaces allow ZAR1 to be linked to CAD and DTP systems. ZAR1 generates drawings of the front and side elevation of the gears calculated, plus tables containing the gear data and dimensions.
The tooth shape with involutes and envelopes can be calculated precisely and plotted out in CAD. A single tooth, the tooth space, the complete gear, gear-generating tool, planetary gear train and a sectional view of the tooth action can be displayed on the screen or output as a CAD drawing.
I don't have any personal knowledge of this company or its software. I found them searching the web. You'll need to contact them for more info.
