Helical Gear Display in drawings

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?

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

I don't see anything "offending".
