Fully Customizable Twisted Gears (Parametric)

Wow! These things are cool. Using the customizer, you can create a gear(s) that can have any size, and all dimensions of the gear and its teeth are customizable. Customizing in OpenSCAD is faster, and you can use my built in animation features. Please ignore the “animate” variable when using Customizer. To animate this model, set your frame rate, and set the steps to 360. Then, change “animate” from 0 to 1. you can set it back to 0 to re-center the gears so they are 90 / 45 offset instead of arbitrarily. Note: When printing NON-double gears, be sure to mirror one of them. Otherwise, they will not mesh. When printing doubled gears, they will always mesh one way or another.”
