Art Recipe #1: Compact Wreath
Made with the compact gear set.
Using the 96 ring, the 72 gear (with 36 ring in it), and the 24 gear in that.
The 24 in the 36 makes a 3 pointer design.
Start with the 72 gear at 6 o’clock in the 96. Position the 72 so that the 36 is at 6 o’clock.
Align the 24 gear so that the 1B pen hole is one gear tooth off of the 6 o’clock position.
Hold the 72 gear still and make one copy of the 24 in 36 design.
Shift the 72 6 teeth in one direction and repeat the design.
With each set of steps the 1B pen hole and 36 cutout should remain as close to the edge of the 96 ring as possible.
Repeating this design 16 times will complete the design.
Note: the photos of this gear set are of a V3 fluorescent blue gear set so it doesn't perfectly represent the improved appearance of the V4 compact gear set.
