Are Toolbox Gears Accurate?

First off, I will disclaim that I am not a gear engineer.

 

I was hoping those that are could give me a general yes/no as to if the gears in the 2011 toolbox (specifically external spurs) are accurate enough to have 3d printed and actually operate well enough on low RPM and torque devices for functional prototypes.  I realize the process of printing will affect how smooth and quiet they will run, but for now I am only concerned with whether the geometry is sound.

 

Thanks for any feedback.
