Given that the 3 gear in the picture are the same is it possible in Georotic to place the gears with a mirrored symmetry?

Can you better define what you mean by mirrored symmetry? DO you mean tooth meshing on that third one?

Yeah whenever I try to put a second wheel down (the middle gear being the pinion)  I get a tooth clash



This example where the gears are at 90 deg to each other

Hmm, that seems like a bug I haven't yet seen. How is it being placed? Left gear, then top right rolled off left, then bottom rolled off of top right?

 Ill run some tests..
