    Yea, LEGO gears :-p

    But really, I would imagine that in a 'real' application, you would have to have a separate bevel gear (90*) and spur gear (same plane). These could possibly both be hobbed from a single piece, making an integral unit, however you would need to leave enough clearance between the blanks for the hobbing tool, so the part would likely be kinda big relative to the size of the gears.
