General Information

“Gears of Creation” was a concept I thought about when realizing all the amazing things created by the motors and gears used to create the X-Carve. I used a sprocket file from Inventables “Pro Design Gallery” and designed a connecting bracket with logo all sitting atop a motor to drive the sprocket!

All the files for this project can be made with plywood, like the Easel project above, but my images of my finished product was done using aluminum sheet, MDF, Plywood, and HDPE from Inventables materials. If you would like to create it as I did, and of course you could change out their logo for your own, use the Easel file links below.
