Description

This working gear train is ready for you to download and 3D print. The fun and interesting mechanism features a two stage gear train with each stage being a 41:11 speed change. The combined change is speed means that the small output pinion turns almost fourteen times as fast as the large forty one tooth gear. You can see see a video of the gear train in action on Instagram here.

I’ve printed the parts using different colours of PLA to make a colourful model.

Once printed out, the parts fit together like this and should be free to rotate smoothly

1 review for Gear Train

  • Overall prints nicely and gears work well. Only issue I had was the spacer element is too large. My solution was to print another small gear to use as the spacer. It fit perfect.
