Rotating Skull Gear
by CarryTheWhat, published
I used Emmett's rotating gear code from the heart gear, and mashed it up with the CT scanned skull. I tried a few orientations, I like this one the most because it splits down the middle of the face.

Cool idea! Hm, so you would not need the gears to rotate then? What sort of printer do you have? I imagine you will have lots of difficulties with support if you try to print it out all as one piece.. why not print them separately and assemble, but add some super glue if you want it to stay solid & together?
As for the last piece, that shouldn't be too difficult. pick whichever orientation you want to be down toward the shifter, and subtract out a cylinder of the right dimensions.
I want to print this as one piece to make a gear shift knob. I have the nylon. Does anyone know an easy way for a newbie to assemble this as a solid print and maybe add a base to drill and tap for the shifter? This would be the ultimate gift for a gear head!
Yeah it should be possible! You just need to have a solid-body to intersect with. The tardis version probably failed because the popular tardis model is hollow in the center. If you close up the center, then it'll probably work. Though, it might work better if you shrink the tardis along the Z axis so it is closer to a square.. Let me know if you need help.

This was printed on my Up!, I haven't tried it yet on the Replicator. I printed using support, because of an overhang on the eye socket.
**EDIT 8/2/12** So I accidentally had uploaded an earlier version of the skull. It should still have come together, but would look a little different from the picture. I have now uploaded the newer version.
