I wiped up a gear generator based on the MCAD 'involute_gears.scad' libarary
Hopefully, this makes creating gears very easy since all you have to do is plug in some numbers and press F6.
- recessed sides (single or double sided)
- gear hub (single or double sided)
- set screw in the gear hub
- relief holes
Added options for double set screws and setting the distance for the set screw from the end of the hub.
Added a couple of new examples.

Another video of gears in action:
Example to make a gear with recess sides, double-hubbed with set screw and relief holes (see attached image):
EasyBakeGear (circular_pitch = 88,
number_of_teeth = 64,
gear_thickness = 7,
bore_diameter = 3,
recess_thickness = 2,
recess_diameter = 28,
recess_double_side = true, //default false
hub_height = 12,
double_hub = true, //default false
hub_set_screw_distance = 3, // If 0 or missing, hole is centered
hub_set_screw_double_sided = true,
