yup same here

Same here, everything meshed and fit in the planet arms but wasn't even close to fitting in the ring gear.

I don't sell anything I make, but there are lots of people who will print things for you. Search online for 3D printing services or find a local maker space.

Hi,

I don't have a 3d printer, but could do with several of these gearboxes - is there any way that I could order them? Also if possible, it would be great if the axles from the planets and the sun could be around an inch long too for my robot...

Hm. mine rendered well, but the solid base ring was too small to hold the sun and planets. Did anyone have this experience?

My Slic3r doesn't render it well, it says it has errors in the STL.

I've just tried making this with two problems, the planet arms part had no arms between the holes (just three unjoined hollow towers) and the central 'sun' gear was two large to fit inbetween the three larger planet gears. Cut it on Slic3r and printed on my lulzbot 101, apar from that it came out clean and (nearly) good to go.
