Extruder Gears

Extruder Gears 3d printed Mechanical parts Robotics
These are involute herringbone pattern gears for Wade's Most Excellent Extruder. The gears that came in my Printrbot Plus kit were warped and misshapen. Laser-sintered nylon is a very precise way to make objects, why not my extruder gears?

See the picture with the black and the white gears:
The Black gear came with my Printrbot Plus kit. The STL file shows a diameter of 63.78 mm. The gear that was printed by a Printrbot in my kit measures 61.25 (averaged 8 measurements) The white gear was printed by Shapeways in Laser-sintered nylon and averages 63.25 mm

If you want a little Headhunter - Gothic - Cannibal - Biker vibe on your 3D Printer, check out the Skulltruder!
