Parts that work with others


#1

34 movable parts and 24 pins, from https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByKOCnut-FVSX2tidmIyMzNvZ0E/view?usp=sharing at https://grabcad.com/library/circular-linkage-with-fixed-center-mechanism-1.I suppose I should have mixed up the colors better, but there were many fails and it was printed over time


#2

Helical gear set.


#3

15 cm tall helix. It only took about 30 hours!


#4

These are awesome! What resin did you use?

Also, what were your support strategy and print orientation for the helix screw and the gears?


#5

I’ve only used G+.The only support I used for the helix was to the first layer of the helix. I bordered the first layer with a thin-walled perimeter and coned the center shaft. I used more supprts for my first iteration, but it was a huge mistake, resulting in unacceptable deformations throughout…
