Paradoxical Gears, orig. by Jacques Maurel
by Ushanka, published
I couldn't find models for them online, so here's my take. It's just an AutoCad DXF of an involute curve, extruded in OpenSCAD.
The 1- and 2-tooth gears mesh beautifully, though I have not tried motorizing them. I'm currently out of filament so I haven't tried the 3-tooth gear yet :(

Thanks for the posts, I've updated the link in the description. The video you've linked to shows the gears operating normally, that is, one is moving clockwise and the other is moving counterclockwise. This video shows the "paradoxical" motion that is so appealing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
