This small 3D printed planetary gear set is created by Thingiverse user aubenc with a ratio of 4:1 per stage. aubenc experimented this gear set with a Makerbot Replicator and it appears awesome.
"The gears are designed with a circular pitch of 2.5mm and they are also slightly beveled at the tips of the teeth to avoid the need of cleaning the excess of material from the firsts layers."
aubenc set the Makerbot Replicator with 0.4mm nozzle, ReplicatorG - 0034 and Skeinforge 47, and recommended to set layer height at 0.25mm.
The .stl files are free to download from Thingiverse if you want to make your own copy. Another nice copy is from Thingiverse user Rasle500, see the photo below.
