Configurable Planetary Gearset for holiday gifting

imants_smidchensimants_smidchens Member Posts: 63 EDU
Whipped up a quick configurable model for those in the holiday spirit - type in a name/string and this generates a print-in-place planetary gearset with that name patterned around it.
Gear-ate for a personalized gift! Customize your own here

-Stable for up to around a dozen characters, no guarantees beyond that :)
-Includes a hollow cavity for captive magnets to turn it into a fridge magnet (configurable dimensions)
-Groove around the outside is to tie a string around, turning it into a hang-able ornament
-Remember to do a color change for the last few layers
-Spinny results may vary - you might need to reduce flow factor in your slicer to prevent gears from fusing
-In PrusaSlicer, go to advanced settings and lower the slice gap closing radius to .02 or less (ensures gear teeth are printed cleanly) not sure if theres some


Happy printing!

    Seems that site is focused on phone holders - maybe this is a spam post?
