I can't figure out how this is put together can someone help?

Can't figure out which gears go where!

Been trying different positions for a few days now and can't get it right..

Could you email me some better photos that show the pieces in place, please?


Can you post the individual gears of steloctagear1357.stl? One broke and I dont wnt to have to print all four again.

Nevermind! They all broke! Re-printing at higher density!

Had to let you know that although I mad this version about a year ago I have not got round to posting a likeness so for that I apologise. I actually think this model is very cool and I love the sharpness of the pieces. For me it has a very pronounced sci-fy feel and hints at an artefact from another world. I will post a pic of mine with reference to yours. BTW it was this model that started me playing with OpenScad so thanks..

It's made, not mad

You're mad for posting the comment.

I love this design! Is it possible to just increase the amount of teeth to help solidify the overall shape?

I would worry about the gears not meshing well if you increased the number of teeth. If you want to try it, you simply have to alter a couple of parameters in the SCAD file. Then re-run the gear calculator for the new numbers.

Good luck!

Nice, I'm glad to see my code is sufficiently readable. By the way, two T's in Emmett. :)

Fixed! Sorry about that.
