This is a simple bevel gear model intended to test your printers ability to print really tiny teeth features. My printer succeeded in making it to the top but I felt that the teeth stopped being usable below 1/2" in diameter.
I recommend scaling this model down because the large diameter section is a really easy test to pass!
