Today it was time to give some new gear generation code a try. Using CamBam I created gcode for a gear with a 2″ pitch diameter, 18 teeth, 20 degree pressure angle and a diametral pitch of nine. I then cut a couple of them out.

The original plan was to work on precise cutting of two sides of an object. That idea failed so I had to eyeball it. Here is a video of my Fireball CNC V90 and EMC2 (running on Ubuntu Gutsy) in action:

The gears fit together nicely.
