Yeah the belt has flat parts in between the teeth indeed.

I'm taking a look at just 1 slope of one of the teeth, as logically it's mirrored at the other side of the tooth.

and the teeth end consists out of a circle with diameter 0.55 mm and part of the slope is a small segment from a circle with diameter 1.00 mm

My math is about that, and the outcome 0.498876404 if i fill that in, in both formula's i have, i seem to get different y-outcomes, which shouldn't happen :)

So something still wrong in my math approach...
