I printed this thing from PLA and painted with gold and silver varnish. I made it as part of steampunk costume together with another project - Steampunk goggles.

  • All elements have been slightly modified for for smoother operation
  • New gear (16 mm)
  • Renamed STL files to match real dimensions

UPDATED 2015-09-02

  • New Catch-wide.stl element for straps up to 27 mm


1) Print the base part. It is prepared in 2 variants:

  • In one piece - Base.stl
  • In two pieces that need to be glued together (Base-part1.stl, Base-part2.stl)

2) Print few axes
3) Print few gears
4) Assembly all parts together in the way you like :)
5) Optionally print catch elements to attach the base to a belt or to other thing

would it be possible to make one of these bases to fit a backpack strap?

Sorry - but without redesigning whole thing you can use ~ one inch strap max (see Catch-wide.stl). You can try to design a custom catch element or just ... sew a narrower strap on top of your 2.5-inch one :)

Maybe - what is this strap width?

around 2 1/2 inches

Thanks again -- I'll let you know how it turns out.

I like this item, but I'm very much a 3D printing newbie -- the gears printed fine, but the base won't fit on my UP mini 3D printer platform. Can anyone show me a way to print the base in two shorter pieces? Thanks in advance!

Check the new STL files. Due to some Cubify Design errors I needed to redraw the base item and I didn't check how it prints yet - please let me know do the new parts match themselves and the other elements.

I will brake the base item into 2 smaller pieces that you will need to glue together. Sounds OK?
