New geometry of generating spiral bevel gear is proposed. The key idea of the new proposed geometry is that the gear tooth surface geometry can be investigated in a developed curved surface based on the planar engagement principle. It is proved that the profile curve on the back of generating cone surface is a conical involute curve. The equations of generated gear tooth surface are achieved by the conical involute curve sweeping along the tooth trace of gear. The obtained equations are explicit and independent of the machine-tool settings. This differs from previous studies. The developed theory is illustrated with numerical examples to compare with the previous method, the comparison approves that the method is possible in this way. The new method indicates that there are new solutions to the design the production of spiral bevel gear.
