Emmett's Gear Bearing

Postby jd_3d » Sun Apr 14, 2013 2:41 pm

Thought this design was pretty amazing, and I love printing assemblies all at once. Sliced with KISSlicer using the inset surface at 0.1mm (I think) as I needed more clearance. Here's a link to the model:

I tried to print that when I had the z-wobble. Talk about fused gears.. lol.
How does it roll?

It rolls reasonably smooth. Here's a quick video I made to give you an idea.

Could you use it as a PLA roll bearing? We had made one with the intention of using them as such.

Yeah should work fine provided you have a rod small enough to fit in the center.

That looks like a nice finish on that piece. Did you have to use support for the hair curls? If so, how did you clean it up after? I've never done anything like that so I'm curious how you got it to look so nice.
