    I ( and doubtless many others ) would be interested in hearing to what level of accuracy the Involute is created and what manner of geometry it is comprised of. As well, what specific gear related...

    Hmm. In the span of just three days, we've made more Glass Filled Nylon AND SLA gears, as well as steel ones.
