Description:

Simple model showing cross axis transmission using constrains. Useful for beginners. This model was renderized with Cycles but I think it could be also rendered with BR. The sample image and video were rendered at a very low resolution. Regards, artist.

    Hi oldtimer, I really like your idea to realise something like this in Blender, i never thought of doing something like that in blender and i like constraints. I think the rotation is okay but something is wrong with the mesh, in this case the machine would break on the big rotating platform. I'm not a watchmaker, I just hope there is a solution for it to make the mesh accurately for that gear in the middle.

    Hi, artist. Yes, now that you mention it, I realize the image sample is different to the the one of the video. Can you see it?. I have to make another video with an arranged mesh of the big plate. The mechanism should work fine. Thank you for your observation. I think tomorrow, after my morning run, It, will be fixed. Regards.

    New blend and image uploaded. I think it should be fine now, taking into account that the transmission of movements is perfectly possible eventhough the meshes are artistically treated. Take care.
