Talk:Voltolini - Starkling 80
Starkling 80 by Marco Voltolini
Another design for the 80 index gear (I've been using it a lot, lately). This is an easy design that is fun to cut. Only pay attention to the C tier: there are no meets and you have to cut it a little past the previously set (by the B tier) centerpoint. Cut it in GemCad and what I mean will be clear. This is to have a nicely shaped star on the crown. If you don't "overcut" you'll have a too "fat" one (to my taste). Cut it by eye without much worrying about it, since small differences in cut depth do not affect the overall look much.
I designed it for quartz, but it should work very well for CZ. Other RI's higher than quartz should be satisfactory as well.
