Set the bearing position as shown in fig. 21: move the cursor to the intersection of the first section’s end line and the surface of the second one. After the Endpoint snap is triggered. Click to fix the bearing position. The inner diameter of the standard part will be determined automatically.

Fig. 21. Placing of the bearing on the shaft

A new dialog box with the name of the bearing appears (in this case, GOST 8338-75). Set the dimensions on the Properties tab: bearing view (frontal or side). If you change the inner diameter of the bearing, the diameter of the corresponding shaft section will also change. The Dependences tab shows the parametric and geometric dependences applied to the bearing. In the Calculation tab you can calculate the bearing longevity for given radial and axial loads.
Make sure the Dynamic input option is disabled. Set the bearing dimensions as shown in fig. 22 and click OK.
