This is a great implementation of a great idea. Super Job!
I assume that you know, at least a bit, about gear design
Do you have any suggestions for where we should look to learn about this?
I have been learning how to build 3D models of gears - but all the lessons that I have encountered so far has been on drawing gears based on pre-defined gear parameters (ie: Tooth Count, OD, PA, etc).
What I have not had much luck finding is a good explanation of how to come up with these numbers to define my own gears that have a specific gear ratio and fit in a targeted space
any suggestions??? thanks!
