I need to create a set of bevel gears for a Shay locomotive in a Sketchup project I am working on, and I was wondering if there is a Blender tutorial for this? Thanks in advance for any help you may give.
The plugin you need is called now add_mesh_extra_objects. To enable it press CtrlAltU. That will open the preferences window. On the Addons tab type extra and and check the box for Add Mesh:Extra Objects
You should have new options on the add mesh menu. Select Add_Mesh_Gears_gear.
On the tool bar (T) You have a lot of options to create the gear you need.
