Papadopoulos created a 3d printed synchro gearbox and uploaded online. It is a project made for Technological Educational Institute of Crete. He designed Synchro Gearbox using Skeleton Modeling software and excel, and finally 3D printed with Dimension elite 3D printer. Totally 142 pieces parts are printed out. What a fabulous piece! Do you also like it? A. Papadopoulos shares the stl file at for everyone to download and print their own gearbox.
