Gear Tool Max?

Recommended Posts

I seem to be unable to create a gear with more than 100 teeth using the Gear Tool. No matter what Parameters I use it seems to max out at this. Is this normal behaviour for the tool?

Yes, the max number of teeth is limited to 100.

These sites allow you to create and export aligned pairs of gears:

Costs $2.00 for a day's worth of downloads:   https://geargenerator.com/#300,300,100,6,0,0,0,2,1,20,3.3333333333333335,6,20,-90,0,0,0,0,0,0,66,11,6,20,-90,0,0,0,0,0,0,3,798

Images only but also offers a $28 Windows based software:    https://woodgears.ca/gear_cutting/template.html


The one I use is:    http://www.hessmer.org/gears/InvoluteSpurGearBuilder.html

It offers Free downloads as .SVG which can be imported into Adobe Illustrator and then exported to FZ.  Imports are polygonal so I usually rebuild one tooth as nurbs and copy rotate for creating smooth solids which are then exported as .stp for CNC.
