Is there a way to unfold/unroll a gear... It can be 3d or 2d doesn't matter.

So I want from the fold version to the unfold version.

Edit: This is what I managed to do.

Right one is ok, but I don't like the twist, I simply need to move the unfold gear around a circle.

Thanks in advance!

you can use a Bend Deformer to roll/unroll a spline (or geometry). Here's a quick example with a rough hand drawn spline.
