You do not need special software in order to cut a gear on a CNC milling machine. But you need special software in order to produce a correct 3d model of the gear tooth. We have been providing 3d CAD gear tooth model for 10 years from ZAKGEAR site. All of the machining shops would use their standard CAD/CAM software for programming a tool pass. It may be not a good idea to dictate the tool pass to somebody who may have better experience in CNC machining.
