Competitive economy in the current stage requires the development of rapid prototype of a particular product. Reducing the time needed with  prototype design and construction is doing by concurrent engineering so as to achieve integration between the stages of product development. Parametric design is of interest to design pieces families, each family member being able to be designed by changing initial parameters. Making physical prototype most often involves high costs, even in case of  a properly project. The paper presents a method of parametric design of wheels  that make up a gear and the physical realization of the gear prototype using rapid prototyping technique.
