Summary

This has been created with my new PLA gear kit, which includes parametric PLA compatible pin connectors. With this new OpenSCAD kit, the gear centre and pins remain the same, its only the outer shells that change. It will allow the creation of all sorts of gear object mashups.

Instructions

If you have a Replicator 1/2/2X all you need to download and print is the centre_plate, pin_plate and full_plate. They already have helper tabs, so they are ready to slice. I kept the center and pins separate so you can print them in a different colour, which I personally think looks better =)

If you have a smaller printer you can print the small_plate and plates 2,4,6,8, instead of the full_plate.

The pink heart gear I printed above used 25% infill, and 3 shells (2 extra shells in ReplicatorG) at a 200 micron layer height with the skin module enabled.

Printed very nicely! I needed to reduce the pin plate down by 2mm in X to get an easy to rotate but tight fit. Initially I used 90% for the pins and that was too loose. But 100% was way too tight. This is likely a calibration issue with my printer though. Very cool model! Wife loved it for Valentines day!
