Today’s step toward world domination was mastering planetary gears. This attempt was clumsy and needs some tweaking, but all in all I’d call it a success.
The project is PG medium draftboard. The first incarnation of this project had lacy, delicate gears that looked interesting, but promptly cracked at the first sign of resistance. This time, I kept the gearwork more solid.
Next time, I need to adjust the contact angle of the gear teeth, and wax them so they don’t jam up every 5 seconds.
And add more bunnies.
Eventually, this will be incorporated into a sequential puzzle box I’m designing.
