I am trying to make this gear on my 3D printer. I draw an involute gear and in order to make it on a 45 degree angle, I resize the top . I have also attached the file of the gear so far.
My issues are two fold. The teeth on the gear, when printed out are deep at the bottom and very shallow at the top. When I put 2 of these gears together at 90 degrees, they don’t “mesh” well (I think) because of the shallow teeth at the top.
Also, the bottom part of the teeth “stick out” and I can’t figure out how to cut the tips off so to speak so they look like the original gear pictured.
I hope this makes sense but the bottom line is, How do I make this gear? Are there any tutorials or youtube videos for make gears like this? I couldn’t find any.
Do I have the wrong plugin?
