Gear Profiles for Art and Science

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Lots of steampunk artists enjoy including gears in their artworks. But gear tooth profiles have come a long way from Roman pinions and cogs, and medieval, blocky chunks stuck on a wheel. Guy Letourneau explains the history and development of gear tooth profiles from the early 19th-century to present, and how to generate realistic shapes for your own artwork, reminiscent of past or present.
