Perpetual Motion Test - Da Vinci Overbalanced Wheel
by idea_beans, published
I must have done the design incorrectly or something... if anyone has any idea how to make it work like in the YouTube video, please let me know. Otherwise this thing is just another cool desktop ornament!

You are ignoring the fact that the "tool" you are referring to cited a principle well known within the physics community, and judging by your response it seems that you have never even looked into said principle. I'm not at all deriding you, I actually like what you have made. However, simply because people are saying that the overbalanced wheel is impossible, does not mean that we are referring to the fact that it is 3D printed. Even a "shining example of a perpetual motion machine" would not work. No one is putting you down, they are just refuting the idea that this will work. I believe this may be a better investment: http://funny-pictures-lol.com/...
thanks, I had to make a couple of mods but it does work. to the tool that said this would never work and that you would be a multi- billionaire. Where do I pickup my cash.
Main issues with the design was the weight, the main shaft the wheel sits on is plastic and the shape of the wheel spokes. Nothing a little filing didn't fix and a little steel.
I am working on another model that will give you "Perpetual motion" that will still work if there is a little friction so it will be 100% printable. I say "Perpetual motion" as it will only run for as long as the plastic will last due to wear and tear/ friction however it should take at least a year before you have to start replacing parts (as they are plastic).
I think the main reason a lot of people comment and say that this will never work is that they think when someone says this "3D printed" model made in "Plastic" is literally a shining example of a perpetual motion machine. Reality check people, a plastic machine that has been printed would be a prototype at best so stop putting people down for their great designs and hard work.
no it won't work, ever that's basic physics, and one of the first question to physic student "why this kind of machine can't work ? " short statement "perpetual movement can't work because of the thermodynamical principle" with addition "since the time these machines are in the books, if they can work, somebody surely had made one work, but it never happened", third: if you can make one working your are the next nobel prize in physic and the future multi billonnaire at the end of the year
