this is just one of my models ive built over the years now I'm submitting them for review & youre entertainment enjoy. an orrer is a model for a planetary system that moves using one motor most of the time (sorry ti's just my term for it)i pic is right here for a famous one. heres a link to the video if you cant see it here.

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

Could you label the celestial-bodies and rotate the images (that need it) 90<sup>o</sup>?<br /> <br /> L<br /> <br />
k i did it ur welcome<br />
and i posted a video look at it u shud get some troubleshooting done from that<br />
Yes that looks better, where is the video link?<br /> <br /> L<br />
i thot i put it up already as a ible video but if you insist just a sec ill go get the link
Thanks - shows the thing well.<br /> <br /> L<br />
thanks for the comment<br /> <br /> <br /> R
If we're on the topic of improvement, a description of what an orrery is and a picture of a famous one might make your first step even better =]<br />
thanks again to you this is my first real 'ible on this site the others were guides
i've put up a link to my vid. &amp; thanks for not bieng so critical on me
looks a bit flimsy....
it's just going to be that way you can modify it &amp; make it less flimsy but you have to&nbsp;label the mechanism design as mine other than that youre fine to mod all you want
i really dont wanna build it, ive better things to be making.....
oh ok then i'll just bring my knex kit out &amp; start moding it<br /> <br /> <br /> just a sec<br /> ......<br /> ......<br /> ......
