An orrery is defined as a clockwork mechanism of the solar system (or part of the solar system). The clockwork mechanism is of course the part that I find intriguing and I wanted to make a model that I can sell as a kit. This is the result of several weeks of work:
The kit will go on sale soon and and a small sale will be held once the release video is ready. Follow my YouTube channel to see when this happens (here).
For now the assemble instructions are available for free download to anyone who are interested in how the mechanism is put together. The skill required to build this is advanced.
In the future I want to make a much larger model with and include celestial items. I want to make it out of nice hardwood and and much much larger. But this is just one of the many things I want to make – if I do it it will definitely be documented!
