Description

This is a fanciful, yet functional rotating, spiral bevel gear, iPhone dock. Yep, that's a mouthful. This is the fun and ultimate EngiNerdy desk piece. Anyway, I'm an engineer by trade, so I'm a gear head. This dock was designed for the OEM Apple lightning cord to route through the rotational shaft/base. This is to prevent binding when the assembly rotates. I used GearTrax CAD software to create a perfect spiral bevel gear mesh at a 3:1 reduction. I printed this in eSun white PLA on an Ultimaker 2 Extended:

Brim for adhesion of the gears

No Supports Needed

The gears should be 100% fill to prevent any delimitation under gear loading. The shaft is press fit, so use a rubber hammer and a socket over the shaft to assemble to the pinion. The bolts used to attach the dock to the 51 tooth gear are M4x20mm Hex bolts that you can buy at any regular hardware store down the street. Leave a comment if you have any questions or concerns? Have fun!
