92 Gears - Caged - Render by TaffGoch 92 Gears - Caged - Render by TaffGoch
Added external cage, to support gear axis spindles, which also adds reflectivity & shadow interest to the overall render

Red gears: 20 teeth, 12 count
Blue gears: 24 teeth, 20 count
Yellow gears: 13 teeth, 60 count

Red gears aligned with icosahedron vertices Blue gears aligned with dodecahedron vertices

Polyhedral basis for red & blue gears: buckyball

Regarding all 92 gears, the central rotation axes are aligned with the vertices of a frequency 3v, class-I geodesic tessellation of an icosahedron

Modeled in Google SketchUp
Rendered in Kerkythea
Animated in JASC Animation Shop

Do you plan to make a stereoscopic version of this one?

I'll certainly consider doing so, when time permits.

Right now, I'm studying flash; to produce a pop-up
volume control for this deviation ...

... 92 Gears - Flash Animation ...

... which shares the same gear geometry.

Can you give me the original animated frames? I'd love to make a much higher quality animation without the color limitations of a GIF.

Out of courtesy, I'm going to assume that you don't realize just how impertinent your request is.

Well, GIFs have limitation of 256 colors, which doesn't show the detail of the high quality render

I'm well aware of GIF animation color-palette limitations.

I was referring to the impropriety of your request.

Beautiful work. I am amazed at the way this all fits together. How are gearing arrangements grouped in this?

I only had to construct & fine-tune the position of 3 gears (one of each color)

The geodesic basis provides rotational & mirror symmetry, which permits ready replication of the remainder of the other 89 gears

Generally, geodesic constructs require construction of only 1/120th of a sphere or spherical arrangement. All the rest is replication, by rotation & mirroring

Yes, and having done this on a minor scale myself, you still have my admiration for making it all fit.
