Trying to support other artists, I have started working on a few projects by purchasing the designs on things that interest me. My latest project is a Copernican orrery that is a highly customized version of the Clayton Boyer orrery. I used these plans as a starting point, but almost everything outside of the gear ratios has been modified. The enclosure is a combination of Walnut, maple, draftboard, and clear acrylic. The gears are baltic birch. The Zodiac artwork was purchased from Creative Market. I tried to use as much clear acrylic as possible so you could see the gears working inside. I still have some clean up to do on the edges, but otherwise this thing works great. I modified the design to use a gear motor instead of a hand crank, and works well plugged in to the wall or battery. The planet marbles were purchased off Amazon and Etsy. I may put together an instructable or additional pics showing how I got this to fit on the Glowforge if anyone is interested.
The rotation of the planets is also reversible, as I think I have it going the wrong way on this video:
