Complex and Clean Topology Gears with Blender in Minutes

By Rescan

With this easy array rotation technique and some modifier tricks you can quickly create complex gears in Blender within minutes. The gear we create in this Blender tutorial makes use of the simple deform modifier to create a twisted effect. With a few tricks we will heavily reduce and optimize the topology of the gear and bevel all the edges.
