Gears; Enneacontahedron
Work-in-progress

Gear axes are centered on vertices of a rhombic-enneacontahedron (as shown in animation)

32 large gears - 30 teeth each
60 small gears - 16 teeth each

Gears; 15-21-16 by TaffGoch
Gears; 15-21-16
This arrangement provides (virtually) equal spacing between adjacent red gears. Also, compared to other, previously-posted, arrangements, these three gear components have lower tooth counts (and, therefore, larger teeth.)

I am, currently, checking adjacent tooth fitment, to assess potential for "rattle"...

Clockwork - Steampunk Sphere
24, 20 and 16-tooth gears; 92 total

Icosahedral, dodecahedral and buckyball geometry

Gears, 20-24-16 - Animated
6 frames - Modeled in SketchUp, rendered in Kerkythea, and animated in JASC Animation Shop.

Tooth-meshing seems to work okay. The next step - physical pattern-making of the 3 gears - looks good to go....

If you can't tell, already, I'm enamored of geodesic constructs.

It is my hope that these deviations will inspire others.

Found Domerama online. Blew me away! Never thought such a comprehensive resource existed. Makes me wonder why I'd never seen it before.. hum. I'll be checking in from time to time, you got some great work up here. :) Cheers!

Dan,

Funny thing: Most of my work doesn't show up in Google searches. (I have no idea why.) Generally, people find me & my geodesic constructs through links at other websites (like Domerama.)

I hope you find things, not only visually appealing, but technically helpful, as well.

Feel free to ask. I don't know that I can help much with calculations. Except for the phyllotaxis deviations, I didn't use calculations -- I employ geometric construction methods.

Hopefully, however, I should be able to point you in the right direction.
