This was remixed from ekalfwonS's Planetary Gearset 04 I split the file for a two color printing.
I have a lot more designs so be sure to follow me here at Polymathic Designs to be notified about all my new designs.
Post your makes of this, I would love to see them.
Feel free to ask any questions about printing or to make requests.
ONLY WORKS WITH DUAL-EXTRUSION PRINTERS go to the original model for the single color version.
Here are ekalfwonS instructions for freeing the gears:
Use a 3mm hex/allan wrench into each small planet gear, and gently flex the gear toward and away from the sun gear to break it free after printing. Once all 10 gears are free, the assembly should start rotating with the rotation of one of the planet gears. Movement will be rough to start but will free up the more you spin it and any fine printing strands get worn in or worn off.
The center spokes were added to allow the addition of a driving point... In this case a 4mm hex/allan wrench. Do not try to break the gears free by just using a 4mm wrench in the sun gear and twisting the ring gear... You will break something before it frees up.
