OpenSCAD Helical Gears

I couldn't get the top and bottom parts of the double helical to union properly, so I ended up offsetting the bottom piece by 0.1mm :( It skeins and prints fine though.
This thing is part of a set:

UPDATE: I'm printing some gears and noticed a couple mistakes on the openSCAD script: the variable 'orientation' wasn't doing anything and the value 'extrudeInDiam' was in fact being used as radius. They're both fixed now and I uploaded a new version of the script.

Hi aguaviva. This is a very old script and the gears aren't involute. There are better and more recent scripts for gears on Thingiverse.

Do your gears mesh properly? The teeth are just flat and this will cause lots of troubles, you may want to read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I...
