Instructions

Print with a single wall and no top/bottom infill. Same as the bracelets.

You can use the SCAD file to generate different gears, with different amounts of teeth, larger bore or even a different pitch radius.

Ultimaker springy wheel

Cool. This should be a wonderful 'demo' print!

Daid - in reply to laird

 Thanks. At 10mm height it took me about 10 minutes to print one 12 teeth gear on an Ultimaker, but I think you could speed that up a bit.

I'll add my Cura slicing profile that I used later on. Because the slicing settings are pretty important for this print. You need a single wall with retraction, no infill, no top/bottom, and proper temperature.
