Changed screw lengths to minimize stripping screws.
Posted new zip file (Thingiverse files 110519.zip) that includes updates to the following STL files:
L2 Lower Body
L2 Lower Body Trellis2
Base Drive Cover
Posted updates to the following STL files:
Base Drive Outer Ring a and b
Base Drive Plate
L2 Lower Body
L2 Upper Body
L3 Bearing Race a and b
L3 Bearing Race Lower
The files include changes to make assembly easier, e.g. changing dimensions to provide more clearance and reduce the need to sand or file parts to get them to work smoothly.
Also, use M2x4mm cap head screws to attach the stepper motor to the Base Drive Plate. If you use M2x6mm screws, they go through the Base Drive Plate, and rub against the L3 Bearing Race Lower part, preventing it from turning.
Updated Base Drive STL files. to include hole for shaft encoder.
I modeled this design after a Jacob and Co. Twin Turbo Furious watch. I spent many hours looking at videos and images that I found on the web of the original watch.
Similar to the Gyrotourbillon and the Triple Axis, I tried to make the model an accurate (scaled up) version of the original Furious tourbillon mechanism. I printed plastic screws to scale and used them as caps to cover the steel screws that actually hold it together.
This is a real-time video of it, https://youtu.be/2-7S2i6AUyM
Also it's quite large, with a diameter over 200mm.
In this design, I've included several versions of the Balance Shaft and the Fork which will give you some alternatives to get it to tick easier.
Please read the Overview in Build Notes to get a better feel for the constraints of this design.
I have other tourbillon and related designs at:

Printer: I3 MK3S
