"helical gear" (by mcclipper)
Hello, I would like to make a helical gear, I understood that there is not a possibility with the extrusion function, I tried with the helical function, the big problem the teeth are not the same on both sides.

What you could try is to draw the gear tooth on a plane skewed 90% to the helix angle, and use the axis of the gear for the extrude direction. The sketch normal, and the helix or extrude normal do not have to be the same.
