Hi there, I'm a bit new to OpenSCAD but keen to learn as I find it easier than other CAD programs.
Right now I'm working with an existing rack and gear generator
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5505/#comments and have run into a problem where the racks being generated can not mesh with the helical gears generated since their teeth are straight. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with how to alter the teeth on the rack so that they mesh with the helical gears teeth.
Or if anyone knows another script which already supports helical or herringbone rack and pinions that would be welcome too.
