3D model description

I got my inspiration for this model from an youtube video showing how to cut this from wood

Recently I found out that Oskar van Deventer has invented this toy and is actually selling it as Thinkfun Tailspin

If you don't have access to a 3D printer or if you want to support Oskar please find a store that sells the original toy.

A fun and satisfying toy based exclusively on gears.

Build guide is available here:

3D printing settings

The only parts that require support are gear-link-1.stl and gear-link-2.stl

There are no special settings that you should use for the other parts.
