Guest Curator Emmett Lalish has this to say about this 3DxMechanicals project: “I think we’ve already figured out I’m not the only one on Thingiverse with a soft spot for gears. Still, I love how helical gears and worm gears are the same thing, just oriented differently. I want to do a project to showcase that, but I’d say this thing does a pretty decent job.”
Pitch circle 45 mm (3 teeth), 60 mm (4 teeth), 75 mm (5 teeth).
The diameter of the rolling circle for the epicycloidal curves is all the same 30 mm.
The diameter of the center hole is 6.4 mm (that is suited for the use of M3 bolts for the shafts when the gears are printed in 1/2 scale.) (Jan 13, 2014) Adding STL data of the 4 teeth helical gear….

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
