3D model description

First version of me was adding Balls.
Now I added a gear instead, as I mostly played with the "hole fillers"
I wanted them to revolve the gears and finally rotate the other ball.

Be careful not to wind up the Top/Bottom side, when trying to "Crack free" the print.

Gears1v2 Revision makes the Top and Bottom side thicker and adds more tolerace.

I used FCGears Workbench to recreate all the needed gears and used Sketcher workbench where possible.

You need to print:
Option A) PrintInPlaceGear2, Ball1Gear2, Ball2Gear2, no supports.
Option B) Gears1_V3. This needs support.
Others are added in case you want to remix.

Edit1: Added "printing aids" on the gears. All stl with Gears updated.
Edit2: I tried using PLA, but compared to the ABS prints, PLA sucks :)
ABS is much "smoother", so makes it easier to slide. Much more fidgeting.
Edit3: Made new version with thicker Mainbars.
