Nope, I dont think You ever could. The profiles were always rows of numbers in an internal database. I dont think Ive ever given access to them.

So did the original program have the ability to edit the pulley tooth profiles?
I could swear I saw how to do it once...

Hi Mark:

  The profiles cant be edited, they are internall y defined as to the specs I have for each
pulley type. The gears are done using the involute math and have nothing stored as a profile.
  You could use Vexx to rotate a profile to make a gear if you know the various radii
and such. You can extrude it in vexx as well once created with a circular array.

Hi Marc:

   Im lucky in that the gears I make are typically large enough that a fluted bit will
shave them, but I have seen alot of posts from those with slit saws. Not sure what
their using to make the saws.. hopefully they'll kick in. Anything over a Mod 4 or
so is doable with a milling bit.. though slower than a saw.

Where are the pulley/gear tooth profile definitio ns stored and how do I edit them.
The Web page alludes to this being shown in the 'Attached Video' I just don't see it.
I can't find it in the PDF manual although my search terms could be wrong.

So how do I get at them and tweak them to match my actual belt profiles.
The fact is it's probably the Chinese belts that are 'Wrong' but if I'm making the pulleys
I presume it's just as easy to buy a lifetime supply of belts so they all match each other and build the pulleys to match.

What are the various ways people make their custom cutters?

Do most people make single point fly cutters?

Cut the profile in the outside edge of a tool steel disk on a shaft and notch/relieve multiple teeth into it?

Same idea but starting with a saw blade and grinding it?

Do people build custom machines to grind the tool?

Gearotic really changed that landscape .

All the OLD ways of making gears and pulleys by buying specific cutters or hobs and using specializ ed machines don't apply so much anymore.. .

I think you have a little hamster wheel in the back and the initial spin is just to wake-up the little fellow.  Grin

A battery is too obvious and doesn't account for the pause, although that could have been time to turn on the switch.

I'm stumped
