whats the assembled height?

Hint :
apply a very little amount of table oil on the side of the spikes that go into the bearings.
the small gears go at the bottom

If you still have the video for the steps to making the geared egg from Emmett's heart gears script, I would like to see it. I'm trying to do a similar project and it would be enormously helpful.


Can I scale it down?

Go for it!

Although the pins and holes might get tricky. Hmm... Do you know how to use OpenSCAD? If so you might be able to rescale all but the pins to a point.

If you want to attempt it I'll look for the OpenSCAD file I used to create it.

cool but a little late to get get printed in time for easter

I was posting in for next Easter :)

Let me be the first to wish you a Happy Easter 2017!

how can i assemble them i have no clue thanks!

I am looking at your files. and see you grouped them like in your description. my question is where is number 4? you labeled the files 1 and 5, 2 and 6, 3 and 7. so I am asking what one do i print twice to make the whole egg.

Whoops... Check again. Just added a 4 and 8. I think there isn't any real difference between the ones those except plate placement. If you import all of them at the same time they shouldn't touch each other. The only ones that are probably unique are the aren't the 1 and 5 which are the "top and bottom" of the egg. Just finished printing and the kids are having fun trying not to pinch their fingers :)
