Looks good. Looks very similar as to how Gearotic does it, a digital subtracti on where the involute evolves from the instantan eous rate of change during its construct ion?

Right now, these curves are generated without any subtracti on at all, just solving different ial equations numerical ly in 2 dimension s. This produces "pure" involute curves that are exactly correct at every point. The only problem is that since these curves evolve, they may interfere with each other as they engage or disengage, so my last task is to find an appropria te solution to minimally clip, truncate or sheer off areas to prevent the teeth from jamming - that final piece may be done via a subtracti on algorithm, but we'll see.
