3D model description

This is a mechanical counter that can go from 0-999 in both increasing and decreasing counts - the whole thing is made with 3D printed parts- no additional hardware required!

Something as simple as keeping count is easy to do in the digital space. Before computers and the digital age, however, we used gears and other mechanical components to achieve things such as keeping count. This is a 3D printable adaptation of a really cool mechanical device that is becoming increasingly obsolete in modern times.

This download includes all of the STL files needed to print your own Mechanical Counter and requires no additional tools for assembly.
