>>647444This, but watch out, once you get hooked on the timeline, you won’t want to use anything else.
Why not pirate?
>>647441what does that thing even do
Just pirate it...
>>647606I'm assuming it can be used to do other things.
>>647606It's an example of the mechanical device called a rack and pinion. common use is for car steering.
>>647444why not Moi3D?
>>647441Install Linux and just use FreeCAD
>Alternatives to datum based modeling DesignSpark Mechanical is essentially the free SolidWorks. https://www.rs-online.com/designspark/mechanical-software
>>647441This model is horrible on so many levels. Just look at the grain of the wood for a start...
>>647797yeah but it would not even move and if it did the only thing it would do is create friction between the wood and the rack, and if the rack didn't move it would just create a stripped pinion
>>647840The pinion is mounted on a threaded bolt xD
>>647843>xD on 4chanChrist. But yeah, it's still not that good a design because the pinion would be creating constant friction against the wood like that other anon said. Not good for longevity and efficiency.
