this is version 2 of my wall gears project that was originally uploaded thing verse
it is a kinetic sculpture project consisting of 2 sizes of gear wheels
I created a custom backplate for the gear box to turn the dual motor gear box into a single motor unit
I recommend adding some sort of rubber feet to the back of the fame to reduce noise transfer into the wall, i just used generic 3/4" grommets
its a good idea to use some silicone grease on all the pivot points and in the gearbox

Added pre-shelled gears for use if you are unable to print in vase mode (mainly for non FDM printers)
also added smaller gear size
gears are printed in vase/ spiralized mode with standard bottom layer thickness of around 1.45mm
gearbox should be printed at 100% infill, if your printer is not well calibrated to will have to do some post-processing work to make the shafts fit. I just heated up the shafts/bushings with a torch and pushed them into the plastic for a perfect fit
the only thing that will need supports is the switch cover an its only a 10 minute print anyway
