100 Days Project

Sue: Automata ‘n Birds

I have just finished my Master of Science Communication thesis, and to celebrate will design, draw and make objects for 100 days.

Day 24:

Compound gear train

Groups of cogs form a compound gear train. Here, the blue cog turns at one sixth the speed of the single red train. To decrease the space which a series of cogs takes up, smaller cogs are placed on top of larger ones.
