An attempt at a beveled twisted planetary gear bearing. Inspired by Emmet.
Check handedness. Print 2 of the flat ones and 3 or more of the macaroons. Assembly should be pretty obvious.
Looks like thingiverse has decide not to turn off "work-in-progress" automatically.
I printed a working centimeter scale prototype. Two copies of topbot2 and three or more of roller2. Under heavy axial loads it does pretty well.
six-18/18-six is a pair of bevel gears with a different tooth count ratio. In principle, the tooth counts of the large and small gears should be coprime to so that wear is even, but I doubt any of the builds will see enough use for it to matter.

So what's this mean?
We're sure NateTG would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
