Will this work? The stl is generated from the parameterized mendel project (openscad).
I'm sorry I had to zip it, but it was just a tad larger than the upload limit unfortunately.

i think that may work. but i dont know if it is just me but the teeth look like a different spacing from the files that i downloaded from the main page.

but very cool thank you

You're welcome, and yes I'd agree it "feels" different, but they do seem to have the same number of teeth so should be good.

From the openscad file:
//spurs
for(i=[1:20]) rotate([0,0,i*(360/20)])
translate([15,0,11])spur();

For the regular pulleys I had to make the teeth larger to get a good print, but that may be my printer settings. And I haven't tried to print this z pulley.
