In 2014, 1st year engineering students were assigned to create a 3D printed gear train to be used inside of a hard disc drive
The goal for this project was to create a gear train to be used inside of a hard disc drive. A set of gears were created such that they may take an input speed of 77900rpm and produce an output speed of 1000rpm. The gears were designed to fit in the small predefined space but were scaled up in order to 3D print a prototype.
