Update 2019-08-13: Added V3 with reduced clearance of 0.4mm (for MJF Printers)
Andersia did a cool video of a MJF fusion printed part:
Second Iteration based on the latest Fidget Gears 1 V8E + Version 1 of this.
Update 2019-05-06: Found out that central gear doesn't move so smooth. Further the Holder is enough to guide the gears, so doubled the gap between Holder and Gears.
I wanted to have the gears rotating in the same direction to use it as a motorcycle.
If you made one, please post a make. It helps to guide others to this design.
Two major versions:
Gears4_V1 and Gears4_V1 KeyChain2.
Difference is, as the name says: a holder for a KeyChain.
You can use that as well to hold it while playing.
Two subversions each: +BasicSupport.
It contains support-hint structures, as the tools might be not clever enough to put the supports, where they are really needed.
I didn't print this yet. but the only change is the to have a Vertical gear mounted horizontal after 120% scaling.
Please post a make!
petercuypers won the race of being fastest to post a make.
Show me more colours, materials, show me videos how you play with it!
After the print, remove the support structures that hold the horizontal gears with a flat metal tool.
May be the backside of a scalpel, may be a tiny screw driver with sharp edges
Make sure that:
- you don't hurt yourself. it happens too fast to stick the tool into your fingers.
- you put the pressure parallel to the holder to break them off.
if you cut them open, you easily break off the topside of the holder as the blade will add it's height.
- if you use a scalpel, make sure the blade doesn't get in contact to the holder, otherwise you might cut it off.
