Geneva Mechanism

There a few discussions on the forum about making these. I made one and added a motor.

Designed in Cuttle, cut on Glowforge.

I want one!

(And I don’t even know why. It just feels like my life would be better if I had one.)

Love it! What would you use this kind of mechanism for?

Originally it was for watches (Swiss Watchmakers), it was also for movie projectors. Basically allows a continuous rotation into quick (locked) segmented rotation. I was looking for something and came across the formula on a another site.

I found one in use here on the forum.
