Hello there, long time no Post! :D

It may well be I'm the only one interested, but I finally got to produce that 9 teeth, rounded Gearwheel I mentioned...

I didn't liked the Gearwheell, so I went back to Inkscape, made a new 9 teeth gearwheel, and did Path>Dinamic Offset to it.

If you frame it, it looks like this:
A word of warning, Plastic Sheet is not easily creased in larger than 15 cm, more or less 3 Inches, unless you get to make a really strong outfit, and since you're into it, make it go on a perfect straight line, with a guiding…
This great new opportunity Computer aided Paperctaft gives for a lot of Modeling, and Gizmo fun, got me thinking, why only Paper, great Media it is, there's also Plastic Sheet, and so many others...
So I came up with this Crease Rig, just some Meccano pieces, to make a slot, and a third one, to make a neat and easy Crease, on harder meterial:Continue
