Thanks Art!

The vendor may have an internati onalizati on(?!) setting that could be set to flip it to a period as well.  From the examples, it looks like sgCore may not be that aware and may have the comma hard-coded.  You might want to email Geometros about it.

I'd try to dig it out myself to save you the time, but the text features aren't available in the free version.

I forgot to mention that the default installat ion path isn't "allowed" under Vista & Windows 7 with UAC enabled.  You might want to change the default to \Program Files (x86)\Gearotic Motion for Vista & Windows 7 64 bit and just \Program Files\Gearotic Motion for XP & 32 bit versions of Vista and Windows 7.

1. When changing the # of spokes, using the up/down buttons the gears change as expected, but entering a spoke count by hand doesn't change anything even after you exit the field.  If you un-check and re-check the Spokes checkbox, the spoke count correctly reflects what you'd manually entered.  Changing the spokes from Standard to Curved or Curved to Standard has the same effect as un-checking & re-checking the Spokes checkbox.

2. You can't increase the spoke count past 10 or below 3 using the up/down buttons, but you can manually enter spoke counts below 3 and above 10.  1 spoke does entertain ing things. Smiley

3. When displayin g values in Imperial units, the decimal point is being shown as a comma instead of a period for the gear dimension s marked in red on the display.  (I'm in the US so it appears to be hard-coded instead of grabbing my regional "math" settings)

Would it be possible to get a ratio display?  Say pick an "input" gear and an "output" gear and have their ratio displayed either in the model space or in the 2d design space?

Thanks for writing such an awesome tool!

Art, if you would like to send me an STL of that gear, I can see how well the model is processed by Cut3D.

I like the foam idea - when I get a chance, I'll try it with some 3" long 1/8" tapered ball end mills I have.

Ahh, ok.  Thanks Art.  I'll be buying my copy some time later today.  It's a great program, thanks for creating it!

I'm looking forward to feeding some of the STL files to Cut3D to see how it'll handle bevel gear models.

Thanks Bob!  How would it work for Imperial dimension s?

This is probably a really dumb question, but how can I specify an explicit gear diameter?

Thanks!
