Nautilus Gears With Modified Bar

Nautilus Gears With Modified Bar by J_Hodgie Jul 31, 2012

Description

I love the Nautilus Gears(thing:27233) but I had trouble printing the bar.
To fix this I redrew the connecting bar so it should be easier to print the taller parts.
As well, I made the 2 connecting bars needed the same.

I also uploaded the original nautilus gear file for completeness.

How do you get the shaft on the bar to come out strong and full? I've printed several different ones with PLA and everything comes out strong and fine except the shaft!

If your having trouble with the teeth not sticking give your print bed a quick shot of hairspray before the print!

snaps together very well. I printed with glow-in-the-dark ABS and clear ABS on my Afinia. Interestingly the clear ABS is a bit harder, which actually makes it easier to remove from the platten. It also lets the gears mesh more smoothly after first few turns than does the gitd (and other colors, I'd imagine). This is a great model to give away to friends as a 3D printer showcase - fairly quick and easy to print, and not something people are likely to have seen before.

Just printed this out today, works perfectly! I'm afraid I'll have the gears worn out pretty soon from playing with it so much. :P

solidification's quad Nautilus gear is beautiful - definitely on my list to print next.

Thank you for this! I printed the previous one several times and EVERY TIME it would snap... this one went together cleanly the first time with no breaking!

Thanks for this change. I had issues with the bar snapping on the other set, this worked great.
