Art, I found this rather interesti ng web page. It's for flywheel design but the interesti ng part is the ability to change the parameter s for the spokes. The result is some beautiful, old style spoke styles. The problem is there is no dxf export. Would it be possible to consider these design parameter options for a future release of Gearotic ?

Hi:
   I will consider this in future. The spoke sin gearotics are digital subtracti ons of a single spoke design,
so I cant simply add a setting for such a spoke, but I do have a spoke wizard in back of mind, and already in
the latest verison one can save almost any dxf thats wider than it is taller as a spoke into the spoke
folder. I think a wizard to design a single spoke is possible in this case.


Thx
