3D Printed Prototype "Transmission".

In order to add mechanical motion reversal to some of my 3D printed models, I'm working on this prototype "transmission".

This model is of a prototype "transmission" I'm working on to add motion reversal and a power take off to an upcoming design. The shaft extending from the right face in the photo is the "shift" lever, allowing the reversal of the main shaft (the closest gear shaft in the photo) and activation of the power take off (the furthest gear shaft in the photo). The gear train is idle between operating modes.

A video of the prototype transmission is here:

And a video of the combined mechanisms is here:

Hi Dan!

I'm still working on it, but it should provide interesting animation effects!

That should come in handy, looking forward to the builds this will enable.
