Hi jluisrey,
   Great gear!  How many axis does this process require,and
how deep of a cut can you take on each pass?
   Also..Do you write your own code or what program
do you use to generate it?

  Thanks,
 Glenn Wink

Hello Glenn,

3 Axis are used, X,Z,A, and the deep was 3mm, one pass cut (the material is PVC),

I write a small program and a excel sheet to generate gcode for gear, need tool angle, number of toochs, space bettwen tooch, and desired angle,

Regards,
