This was a continuation of my fairground theme. I also wanted to try using gears.
I used a variety of infills depending on the parts. Obviously the smaller parts needed a greater infill.
There are a lot of individual parts to this model. I have tried to keep the part count as low as possible, but wanted to be able to print with as little support material as possible. I have provided full written assembly instructions to ease assembly.
The model stand 22cm (8.5 inch's) tall and 15cm (6 inch's) wide.
I always wanted to be a draftsman and have always had a passion for designing things. I started my life as a cabinet maker, so love making things, whether it’s out of paper, cardboard, wood or plastic.
I am a keen crafter and amateur book binder. I love computers and consider myself very computer literate. I have taught IT, built my own PC’s, repaired PC’s and worked in IT for a short while. So it was only natural that considering my background I would move into 3D printing.
I consider myself a novice, but am learning new techniques every day and love Thingyverese. What a wonderful place to learn and share my work with like minded people.
