Helical Gear Display in drawings

Hello,

 

I have a beef. When showing a gear in an inventor drawing they look good, but showing a helical gear SUCKS! The display, I realize, is very realistic to what you would see if you held the gear in front of you at this view point or that.

 

Problem is, I put a helical gear drawing on the shop floor and they machinist wonder why I have two rows of teeth on the gear (since it shows the front face and the helix'd gear teeth).

 

Any way to remove said offending gear teeth?

 

Tks!

-Randy

Can you show us a picture of what you got? Here is a drawing I came up with.

I don't see anything "offending".
