I am trying to draw a gear with simple triangular teeth.
I know the number of teeth and the major and minor diameter of the teeth.
How do I easily and accurately draw the teeth around the circumference of the gear? I found a lengthy article with all the math to draw fancy rounded teeth, but is there a simple method for basic triangular teeth like this?
Draw one tooth at 90° to the center and use a polar or circular array to do the rest.
