I am learning about gears.
I was looking for a way to integrate gears in FreeCAD in a more straightforward way than using the PartDesign involute wizard and then doing lots of boolean operations and I found looo's Gears WB. I did not know it existed:
Then I decided to fork the project and enter the Python realm to create a herringbone gear... I did most of it, until I realised that FCGear already allows you to do HerringBone gears using an involute gear and setting beta to the helix angle you want for your herringbone, and "double_helix" property to true.
I am not sure this subforum is the right place, but I wanted to make an entry to create awareness...
Thanks looo for this workbench
