Love to see a DXF or SVG file or similar for laser cutting engravers !!

Just printed this one. Awesome and fun!

printed nicely with my mendelmax

Please disclose the source files for these gears, so that variants (like snapping pins) are possible.

The axles are a bit too thin. I had to reduce the model 50% to fit my MakerBot workspace, and the pins became so thin that they broke off.

EDIT: Also, consider making the rim of the gears a bit narrower, to save build time. And the axles should be at least 0.2 mm narrower than the axle holes, since the printed part will deviate as much from the ideal model.
