The 3 lobbed profile is for the tilt rod on a vertical blind.
Is there anyway to generate a set of crown gears with gearotic?

They are on my lengthening list though...

Missed this the first time around.  Have you considered using a magnetic clutch?  Take the wheel from a caged gear, make two of them, fill the holes with those super strength tiny magnets, and adjust the number of magnets until it starts slipping where you need it to.  Iirc Art made one of these quite some time ago.
