In the last episode, a little bevel gear looked like nifty output, but it was too late at night to make more with a noisy dremeloid, and what's one bevel gear?
Another day, another gear:
More of that with fun zippy sounds and a bit of the milling:
The gears started as an experiment to see if I could tweak a plain gear from fma/Fred's Bevel Gear featurescript in Onshape into something suitable for milling from ~3mm material with a relatively "large" 0.5 mm cutter. CAM by Stewart Allen's current development version of his "Free 3D Slicer and GCode generator": Kiri:Moto. (the CAM took some massaging - maybe more about that later - but with Stewart's current pace of work the details prolly will differ next week)
Zippy speed sounds aside, I'm happily surprised that when I put some drag one one gear and roll the other, they mesh quite smoothly under load. They're supposed to, but it was a pretty uncertain experiment to see if the modeling and milling on this scale would actually turn out a decent result. Yay.
