Bug fix on the Experimental Involute Profile Gear script...

Vik was testing the Experimental Involute Profile Gear script this weekend and discovered that I'd left an active print statement in the code. I've commented it out in the uploaded script that you can get here.

I've made a couple of gear models up that should fit the existing vertical axis, and sent the preliminaries to Adrian. Of course, Adrian might not be able to do anything with them for a wee while if he's stateside...

... so I can tidy up the rest of the components :)

Vik :v)
Was that simplified triangle mesh gear that I sent over of any use to you?

Are you going to show us some screen grabs? :-)
I got the mesh going before I'd received your mesh, but I'm putting it in the AoI file in case I have to rebuild the part.

I'll do some nice graphics next time I'm at the machine. I've done some neat stuff that will hopefully make the central pinion gear a push-fit on the stepper motors that you sourced.

Flip it over, and it push-fits onto the plastic sleeving that is currently in use on the Zaphod prototype.

Vik :v)
