Gear Bakery 1.41. A Port of Dr. Rainer Hessmer's Involute Spur Gear Builder
I ported Dr. Rainer Hessmer's excellent Involute Spur Gear Builder to C++/Windows 64.
I modified the DXF export to be more friendly to Autodesk's Inventor.
Gear Bakery generates regular gears, internal gears and rack and pinions.
Export to DXF or directly to Inventor.
1.2 support up to 250 teeth.
1.3 fix round off issue causing CSG elements not to be closed.
1.4 Added save for parameters (GearBakery.ini). Reloaded at startup More fixes for CSG roundoff errors.
1.41 More fixes for stability.
Get it here:
After importing into Inventor, the gears should look like this:
You can then extrude as needed.
