Two to One Gear Box Nearly Done

Mon, 13 Oct 2014

All the parts layed out and ready for a (roughly) two to one gear box.


I’ve completed the computer files and taken assembly photographs. I just have the instructions to write.


The finished design will be a reduction gear box as part of my essential mechanisms collection. The plan is that you can use the mechanism as a starting point for your own designs, perhaps by adding a dinosaur as shown below. I’ll be producing guides for each mechanism to show how to create your own paper animations as well as producing completed models as examples. Should be fun!

    Hi Rob, I was just wondering

    Hi Rob, I was just wondering when you expect that this project will be online for downloading? I was especially keen to have this gearbox linked to the paperbot- similar to what cool022883 did with the clockwork oragne- but as a first time maker I'd prefer instructions!

    Thanks.
