Description

In honor of the release of Avengers Infinity War, here is a special Avengers Logo where the letters are mounted on a gear train. The gear train allows the letters to spin in a synchronized manner, allowing for a dramatic reveal of the logo.

Here is a video with more details and some humor about Hawkeye, if you are interested:

Materials and methods

Printing:
I printed the gears/letters upright, so there is support material to remove. Be careful when removing support, as the section connecting the gear to the letter can be delicate.

I stiffened up the β€œA” and the β€œG” with a support rib in the back because I had issues with the connecting section breaking during support removal. So be especially careful with those letters!

Post-Printing:
Carefully remove support material as discussed above.

The video (and exploded view) show how to assemble this. Be sure to get the positioning of the gears/letters correct, with respect to each other, so they are synchronized when turning. I find it helps to press each gear/letter on in order, from β€œA” to β€œS”, with the logo facing front (revealed).

You can put a little super glue or epoxy on the top of the β€œMounting Shaft, Avengers Logo” shafts before pressing the gears/letters in place, if you want to ensure the gears/letters can’t pop off.

The base is printed in 3 parts for those with small build envelops and just needs to be pressed together.
