2414X Make It Real Challenge - Circular 12 Tooth Gear Insert

Entry ID #: 10502
Created: Tue, Jan 18, 2022 4:50 AM

Hey! I designed a part made to reduce slop here in geartrain where teams would often avoid using 12 tooth gears as the tooth angle is too sharp adding friction, I looked to design a part to fix this which is when I stumbled upon the idea to make a circular insert for the 12 tooth gear as all the other gears have an insert to do this. You can then run a so-called "Screw-Joint" to reduce slop and friction. I hope you enjoy!
