This might be a beginner's question. I'd love to try out your gear generator, but I can only find the STL sample files for download. Shouldn't there be one or more OpenSCAD files that can be downloaded to generate my own gears? Best regards, Jochen

Hi jochen0706!
I moved some complex objects for the pinshape, to support me to do more things:

Here now, just the sample gears.

Thanks for your reply! I understand this is a paid item now. The price of about one USD seems fair. I was going to purchase, but pinshape does not accept PayPal payments. I won't share my credit card information with that site since I don't know if they're legit.
Best regards, Jochen

something is wrong with the small gear...
am I supposed to put a nut inside it in the middle of printing?!

No, never do it.
Insert it by the shaft hole.
If your nut is bigger than shaft hole I updated the code and included a nut channel parameter.
But for more complex "Grub" please read the instructions.

You need the file(s) from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:331751/#files
This seems to be an extension to the gears from 331751.
