If the full root radius is the important improvement, would it be easier to just add some short radius cuts from the bottom of the gadget's valley in towards the centre, by one tool radius? Is there no BL allowance on the gadget's vectors? Could this be done by offseting the vectors inward by a fraction of BLA ?

At web site go to "gear template generator (new version); then page down to "gear generator program".
I brought the software and have attached a gear that I exported the dxf file from and opened it in aspire. This maybe something you are looking for.
Last question : why are so many people wanting to make DIY gears? They can't all be clock designers.
