Just found this for anyone who needs to create gears, it will even export as a ready made .stl for importing into slicer, and best of all, it,s free. 😀

I was trying to show someone how to import a .dxf into designspark and found this whilst looking for an example .dxf drawing of a gear.
Here is the link.

Instant gears 😉

Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet....

Windows only unfortunately 🙁 I'd be interested in a cross platform system that's more friendly and convenient than OpenSCAD, if anyone else has recommendations.

I haven't played with it yet, but there is a gear workbench for FreeCAD, installable in the Addon manager as "FCGears". Here is the github repository for the plugin for reference: https://github.com/looooo/FCGear
