I am unable to find the planetary gear files. did something happen to them?

Can you use two, one on each wheel? Do you have the CAD files so I can change for my 3 spoke wheels. Cheers!

this will change my life thankyou

What size print bed is required to print these objects?

Thing of the week... No... Thing of the Month... No Thing of the YEAR!
Thankfully I saved my sons previous chair so we'll be able to try this without using the current chair.
Totally awesome.

So I looked through all the instructions and the parts. Nowhere is it explained how the completed thing attaches to the wheel. I do see there are nine slots in the spider part and there are 9 spokes on the wheels of the chairs in the pics. So... I have to assume this will only work on a chair with the 9 spoke wheels. Too bad. But even if the chairs we have were 9 spoke I do not see how to attach this to the wheel securely.

Thank you! We hope you and your son enjoy the Hand Drive! We would love if you could share some pictures of your Hand Drive so we can put them on our site! Enjoy :)

I was thinking of remixing for use on wheels with thin metal spokes. I could do it to the mesh using 3D-Coat, but I'd rather do it in CAD. Could you please post the CAD files?

If you do remix this for use with thin metal spokes, could you pop me a message. My lads wheelchair has the wrong wheels. :(
Thanks

I just wanted to say that this is an excellent project and congratulate the team who built this. You're doing good in the world.

HELLO, I'm come from Spain and I'm quadriplegic .
I'm very interested in your work , but it's a shame that I had several doubts . For instance , the pieces' shape from the download archive doesn't fit with the pieces' shape from the installation web image .I think it would be a great idea if you uploaded a full video with the full installation . I have scare to buy and print the pieces and finally not be able to do the installation.
