These are some nice looking gears, much better than the Algodoo "gears" _o_
They look like 14.5 degree pressure angle to me, quite common for slower speeds
Perhaps you could do the same thing in 20 degree ;) might look a bit cooler?
I can make dead nuts perfect gear profiles with MasterCAM and then cut them in
metal but I don't have a CLUE how you did this :blush: _o_ _o_ _o_
These could be pasted to invisible Cgears for reliability with no collision for looks say for engines:lol:
GREAT WORK you are a GOD :tup: :tup: :tup: :tup:
PS added to favorites ;)

Thanks for the compliment. It took me a long time to make this scene. The scene uses the function, Zo, Ap) where Pc is Circular Pitch, Zo is the number of teeth, and Ap is the pressure angle. I used a 20 degree pressure angle, but you can change it to whatever you want by changing the value in the code in the lowest orange circle behind the green sign. I considered making the pressure angle selectable, but then decided not to in order to keep the scene simple. I may change my mind on this.
WOW I had no idea there was even a function like that in Algodoo:blush:
but I will try and mess with it and learn_o_
I just hope this program lives on and inspires young people to get into the
trades of actually making things;) Its becoming a lost art :'(
looking at your code:
Just shoot me :(

I made the function, Zo, Ap). I used the information from the following paper:

from here:
Algor­ithm to Describe the Ideal Spur Gear Profile

WOW holy sh*t and more WOW
I read the whole thing, understood some of it:bonk:
The Mitusbihi apparently basic based CNC code I am totally unfamiliar with:blush:
I'm used to using somewhat standard G code on Haas machines and rely
heavily on MasterCam for the more complex stuff like gear profiles so
to do my job I don't have to have a deep understanding of the math which is a good thing!!!!
You SIR continuously AMAZE ME _o_ _o_ _o_ _o_ _o_
Wow I had viewed the code, it is very advanced and sofisticated very very good job this is actually more difficult to make than kilinich's circle gears
Thanks guys.
