It was fun making the gears learned a lot about how to use the software from Mr.Ozols. The pulley system we used before was too big and heavy. Therefore, we needed something new. The first gear we printed had teeth that were too small and would have broken when the turbine started moving. Because we had the 3D printer we were able to rapid prototype the gears by making several until we got ones that worked the best. I think I can use 3D printing in the future for by making a better gear ratio to produce more power.
