Ask Mr. Roboto (column) - Dennis Clark
A derivative encoderdisk.ps that prints out two encoder wheels of the same dimensions. While you can’t make as big of an encoder wheel with this file, it makes an identical pair which can be useful. It is used in the same way but has another option to print out a center hub of variable diameter, as well.
