This is a detail of one of the laminate gears – We will add more detail and images to this section later as its quite a complicated process. Each gear is first generated in Blender, then edit the vectors to create 8 precise interconnecting sections that can be cut from wood on the CNC. Each section is then laminated in such a way the grain directions are always at 90 degrees to each other, maximising strength. The whole gear pops together with the dowel plugs but they also need gluing to finish.
