involute gears

more gears, fast

4 gears

I updated the involute (curved teeth), helical gear generation procedure to use Extrusion rather than IndexedFaceSets. Extrusion automatically supports the back and front faces of the gears, and a smooth appearance by producing a mesh with points shared by triangles. So the logo code could be streamlined and therefore is now much faster generating gears.
