Little point I shall bring up, this isn't the best design, And i'm sure I can improve the mechanism so that it isn't as flimsy and it's more compact than before, I will begin work once I have remade it and have time.
Step 1: The Base
this also includes motor built in
Step 2: The Support Tower
as said in desc. this tower supports the mechanism for the orrery
Step 3: Mechanism Lower Half
this mechanism is too big for one step so i split it into the upper & lower halves
Step 4: Mech. Upper Half
as said upper half pt. 2 to mechanism instructions
Step 5: Assembly of Segments
title is self explanatory
