I'm not sure what you are asking. Are you concerned about how much to take with each roughing cut?
Or, if it's a question about finish depth, I think you could use a span/caliper measurement over a number of teeth, or you could use an over pin measurement.
Over pin might not be practical if the OD is larger than largest available micrometer.
Measuring depth is not a reliable way to get the correct "meshing" depth at assembly.
Span measurement using a caliper-style instrument over a predefined number of teeth is commonly used to judge proper finish cut.
There is a span measurement utility available at the FAQ page.
