Business Card w/ Working Planetary Gears
by staffert, published
When we saw the card, we needed to make a few for our selves.
Now the guys here never leave to see a customer without a sample card in their pockets. Yes, all the gears turn.
Hope this gives back a little to the community.
Had to redo the card back file as it omitted the sun gear, also resubmitted the ring gear as it was corrupted.

To all that have had a hard time printing this object....
This was printed on a Z-Corp 650. It was printed in pieces and assembled.
It can be printed on most other machines, as long as you think.
Yes, it may need support material, but you can always redesign it.
I am a bit confused.
The Front.stl has nubs on both the bottom and the top of the object, making 90% of it overhang. So you must print with support.
The pictures of your card make it look like the top is level on the top side. If that is the case, you could print without support and life would be easier. Perhaps you just sanded it smooth?
