A general formulation for the synthesis of the pitch cones of N-lobed elliptical bevel gears and the pitch surface of their conjugate crown-rack is proposed. In particular, both pitch cones and the pitch surface of their crown-rack can be obtained for any number and combination of lobes and in any configuration during their pure-rolling motion. This formulation has been implemented in a suitable Matlab program and several significant examples are shown, where circular bevel gears become a particular case. Computer animations are also available at URL: http://webuser.unicas.it/weblarm/larmindex.htm.
