This is a small 3D printed gearbox that we have tested for the Shapeways 3D parts database. The gearbox was designed by Dick Tiekink. The nifty thing about the gearbox is that the middle gear is printed in the "up" position. You then click the gear in place to make the gearbox work. This design means that the clearance constraint in 3D printing is circumvented and the gearbox is works much smoother than a regular gearbox assembly.
