If you were a kid that grew up with Legos, then you are a lot more likely to understand the fun of the gear set. You can scale it to any size you want and it's still a 3:1 ratio :). The gears should be 100% fill though to prevent any delimitation under gear loading. The shaft is press fit, so use a rubber hammer and a socket over the shaft to assemble to the pinion. with the Have fun!

Hey @shookidea! This is a great concept. Thank you for making and sharing it.

I'm mid print/assembly and having a couple issues. Would you be open to sharing CAD files so I can edit in rhino and post fixes that work for me?

Here's what I'm having trouble with specifically:

  • the pinion shaft is a bit wide for the gear base and pinion gear, even with sanding. I've tried scaling down 5%, which works getting parts to fit but is obviously not ideal keeping overall dimensions.
  • seems like the vertical shaft on the gear base should be slightly taller. As is the horizontal piece on the gear base connecting the two gears has to bend in order get all the parts assembled, which constricts motion of the gears in the final assembly. I am trying a new print now scaling up 2% to see if that solves the problem, though it may obviously create other issues. If I had the CAD file I would add the height only since the other dimensions work fine.
  • the vertical shaft that sits at the center of the horizontal gear is too wide for the hole at the center of the gear (or the hole is too small). I loosened up the connection with sanding and drilling, which works OK, but it might work better to make the hole wider in the STL.

Thanks again!
