Interesting Geared Device
by nicholasclewis, published
This is an interesting set of gears inspired by an illustration in a \"Manual of Mechanical Movements.\" It has a big wheel with slots that a smaller gear wheel slides in.
The .prt files are Unigraphics files.
I originally made this during a class at the Solheim Rapid Prototyping Lab @ the University of Washington (Open3DP)
This is an entry in the Makerbot contest (http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2010/04/makerbot_giveaway.html)
Print all four parts (I have included two versions of the little wheel, one with built in pegs and one that needs pegs, the picture shows one made with brass pegs)
Assemble as shown using screws, nuts, and washers.
