It was a while ago Erik Pettersson (snille) designed and made the inspiring gear painting on his eMaker Huxley 3D printer. Since then Snille has been working on another project: A big kinetic art project - Gear Project 2.
Having an empty 2mx4m wall at home gives him a big space to design and test his project. Inpired by the work from other Thingiverse users, Snille came up with this six framed kinetic pieces with mechanical transmission between them.
The project is designed in Google Sketchup and then printed on a eMaker Huxley 3D printer. It took him 91 hours and used up 316.65 meter 1.75mm filament to print out totally 120 printed parts. What a great job!

Read his full story and working process here. Snille plans to update the last parts (the electronics box) when he got his new motor. So stay tuned. All STLs and the SketchUp file is available on Thingiverse.
Watch below a short presentation of the Gear Project.
