I do not know the make but it was the highest resolutio n machine they had on site, it took up an entire room at their facility.  The piece shown is one of many test pieces, I wanted to get the air gap clearance as close as possible without having the gears fuse together.  I'm in the process of developin g a kinetic sculpture that will be offered up on kickstart er in a month or two.  Gearotic has been the light at the end of a very long tunnel for me and I look forward to showing you all what I'm doing.

EXCELLENT work!!

  I will be working on routines that give you a one-click ability to set air gaps and shaft clearance s
in the end in GT. The idea is to tell the program you want to 3d print a mechanism and it will then bond appropria te gears to shafts, and make clearance s on others that need to spin. Gears will auto shrink just enough to give a user defined clearance and hopefully this will help others who wish to print mechanism s
but dont have the cad skills required for all the clearance work. Things like bearings and worm gears will be added as well, things we didnt do before because there was no easy way to manufactu re them.
   Many companies are looking at adding 3d printers to kiosks and stores to print the publics models, so Im thinking such routines are probably usefull to a great many people in the near future.

   Thanks for showing your work, its is an EXCELLENT display of where the world is headed.
