The idea is taken from the project: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2941033
The design allows you to sort modern Russian and Euro coins. To do this, you need to install the appropriate Filter. Rotate the Wheel to clockwise, slowly and smoothly.
The sorted coins are collected in a Bottle - 8 piece.
The Euro and Rubles have similar sizes, and the US coins differ significantly in size from the Euro and Rubles, so I could not add a third Filter for American coins without a significant increase in the size of this Body. Therefore, this Sorter is not designed for American coins.
If anyone has a need for an American coin sorter in a device of this type, please report. I will try to develop.
The coins should come strictly horizontally and therefore requires further refinement of the funnel, because coins sometimes stand on the edge and the mechanism then does not work.
In any case, this mechanism works! I am very happy about that!!
This device is not for large amounts of coins and is rather designed for demonstration and can be used as a toy)).
Pls see about_asembling.pdf file
I will be glad to any feedback on the design and operation of the device.
I see that the first version of the funnel does not work. Coins stand on the edge and the mechanism does not capture them.
Funnel_v2 -simplified it to a simple cylinder To load a stack of coins, strictly horizontally.
Body_v2 -added holes in the side wall to see the filling of Bottles with coins. Increased the diameter of the channel for coins.
The bottom_v2- is modified for easy closing of Assembly.
Old files i'm not delated to see what is change.

Total: 17 parts (3D printing), 2 paper clips, rubber band, thin plastic strip. No glue required.
The Funnel serves at the same time as a lock of the upper parts of the structure.
To fix the bottom cover please use the 2 paper clips and rubber band. You need to bend clamps in the form like on photo and insert into the holes.
Since coins of different thickness, it is necessary that the Screen moved each time only one coin. For this is a strip of thin plastic. It is inserted into a special slot of the top cover and fixed on top of the Funnel. You can cut the strip in size from any ton and elastic material, for example: an old plastic bottle, yogurt packaging, etc. Bend the strip according to the photo. You need to check when installed on top of the Funnel, this strip almost reaches the Screen or slightly touches it.
Experiment with the design began with rectangular plates, picked up the diameter of the holes in the filter so that the coins fell into the right hole. etc.
