    Tip:

    If you print 3d gears or pulleys, do a few tests on various scale factors. Each 3d printer tends to be different in the scale needed to make gears actually mesh properly. I find my Up! needs a scale of about .97 to make gears that mesh from stl's of perfect size, I suspect all 3d printers are slightly different due to extrusion size and how much the compress the printing line of plastic.

    Wow. Those look great! Looks easier than hacking out the involute paths in CAD.

    I have seen some free software to make gears.

    Is there is a demo version of Gearotic?

    That printer is the best for it's price. It has a 100 micron resolution, right?

    The mini has a 200 micron minimum but I find that is fine for everything I have printed.
