3D model description

This is my first clockwork design. It was modeled it after a Jaeger-LeCoutre Gyrotourbillon, which they offer in several of their high-end watches.

Here is a time lapse of it.
And a real-time video.

Updated the Build Notes (Figure 1) to show where the L1 Balance Wheel Ring goes.

I'm happy to announce that MakerRx has started shipping a kit of the all the non-printed parts necessary to build the Gyrotourbillon. Once you have this kit all you need to make this are these files and a 3D Printer.

Updated the Build Notes.
- Added Screw and bearing notations to figures.
- Changed L1 Frame 1 to the L1 Frame Support 1 screws from M2x12 to M2x10.

I uploaded a zipped EASM file of the whole Furious assembly. With an EASM Viewer, you can rotate the assembly in 3D space, highlight individual parts, do blowups, etc. Hopefully the file will answer some of the assembly questions that the Build Notes do not. Please message me if you found this way of documenting the design useful, or if you didn't. Thanks!

You can download a free EASM viewer here. You need to 'register' to download the viewer but Solidworks doesn't bother you with emails. And there are other free viewers available if you want..

This model is about 175mm in diameter. I power it with a 2 Amp USB power supply.

Read the Gyrotourbillon Build Notes PDF in the files for more information.

I have other tourbillon and related designs at:

Enjoy, McMaven
