It may be possible to generate flywheels with Gearotic but it would be nice to have the direct capabilit y to layout flywheels equivalen t to those sometimes beautiful flywheels used on gas and steam engines. Fancy spokes, multi-level rims, etc.

Hi:

 Yes, by right clicking any gear on the project screen's tree you can select "Strip Teeth" to change it to a flywheel
with available spokes, but I will take under considera tion spokes that better reresent some of those you find
on old steam engines and such. The main problem is that Gearotic is designed to be more 2d in its milling
than 2.5D to do the various depths required. .
