Gear Bakery 1.1. 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.

Get it here








After importing into Inventor, the gears should look like this:



You can then extrude as needed.

Thank you so much for porting this tool, it is such a joy to use compared to anything Autodesk ever came up with.

Hi Doug,

It looks like you made a great stand alone Spur Gear Builder, however, the link does not work.
Would it be possible for you to update to a working link.

Thanks!

The link should work now.
