Fundamentals of Gears / Puzzle Box Design

This video is part of a continuation of an introduction to puzzle box design series. I was astonished by how complicated gears are and I have done my utmost to simplify the concept of gears to make it as approachable as possible. I would love to see what you do with gears in your own projects.

Go for it! I would say it’s one of the most satisfying things to make with a laser cutter.

Thanks for the video and inspiration. I did have one quick question on the plans: Is there supposed to be a bottom on the box or am I missing something?

Oh dear my bad…
I’ve updated the plans and thank you very much for pointing it out to me :sweat_smile:
I look forward to see what you may get inspired to make.

Thanks man! I thought it was me missing something. :slight_smile:
