It needs a 14.5 degree pressure angle setting. That and 20 degrees are the two most common pressure angles used in gears.

I understood now, customizer setup I created does not allow halves. will be fixed in a moment. The script allows any values to be used.

You can change pressure angle. If memory serves I allowed values from 0 to 45.

As I read, apart from the noise there is no advantage of 14.5 over 20. That's why 20 is the default.

it does not mesh when the numberofteeth is set to 100. numberofteeth 500 makes crazy teeth. What did I do wrong?

I tried 100 before, not 500. Backlash probably cause issues at those numbers, try setting it to 0. Also reducing pressure angle might help.
