Please Let Me Know How Much You Like This (1 is very Bad - 10 is Excellent)

Gears are fascinating mechanical components and they have different size, shape, function and forms. It is sometimes to difficult or time consuming to make animations of a gear or mechanical component composed of gears, yet I wanted to show demonstration of these kind mechanism in my web site. This was a time consuming process, but the final result pleased me, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

In the video above we can see very clever device where a full planetary gear is in between half geared sun and half geared ring gears. Notice also that the gear almost makes half revolution when it engaged to the sun gear and almost two revolution when it engaged to the ring gear. I do not know what would be the application of this system be, but it is an interesting concept.

Have you ever tried Phun? or its successor Algodoo? They allow you to create 2D gears systems relatively easily? And they are free!

any companies have these kind of gear set in California or other states?
i really like to get a small one to test (not large than 3.5" for the ring gear)
thank you

Looks like the impacts on the teeth of the blue gear will eat it up pretty quickly if there is very much inertia attached to it.
