Clockwise Mechanism

Creation quality: 5.0/5 (1 vote)
Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

This is a mechanism, which always has a clockwise output, no matter in which direction you spin the crank. It seems magical, but the combination of different gears allows the magic to be reasonable. Print it and let others guess, how it is working!
See a video of it working on my Instagram account - "ChrisibubPrints"! If you don´t have Instagram, contact me and I can send you an Email with the video! :D

See how you should connect the parts on the attached photos!
1. Put the large blue gears onto the orange axis.
2. Put the blue, thin parts onto the axis.
3. Put the red gears on the axis and glue them onto it! The blue pieces shouldn´t be glued to the axis, the red ones should!
4. Put the yellow clip into the blue pieces.
5. Put the gear side parts onto the axis. Don´t glue them to the axis!
6. Put the green gear onto the bottom plate and fix it with the pin. Glue the pin to the gear, but not to the bottom part!
7. Put the top part onto the bottom part. Glue the gray pieces together at the bottom!
8. Glut the orange arrow to the green gear!
9. Put the rotating crank on the axis and glue them together!

3D printing settings

Print verything with 0.1 or 0.15mm layer hight for a perfect result.
No supports are needed for any of the pieces!

Hello, World!
I'm a student who found his fascination for 3D Printing when our school got a 3D Printer. Furthermore I'm interested in modeling things with a CAD software. Have fun while browsing through my things!
If you have special wishes for things I could design, please let me know! :D
