How do I fix the gear I made?
that’s an interesting space! Here are some questions:
- could you provide us a share - link of your space so we can take a look at it?
- what are you trying to achieve with your gears? Based on the code you showed, do you want to simulate the turning of gears?
Thank you for your reply.
I want to use a gear to drive another gear.

I’ve looked through your space, and here are some tips for achieving your gear demo:
- make sure that
gearitems have 0 friction
- make sure that all
cylinderitems have 0 friction
restrictblocks can be placed after another because they are just setting properties. (so you do not need a
run parallelblock for them). You should also restrict
Below is an example with all 3 tips combined:
Code in action
Also keep in mind that I raised the gear-tips slightly, so they do not collide with the ground:

Hope that helps! Your gear-demo can be used in a lot of interesting ways. For example, you can turn one gear into a motor by applying constant force!
The effect is very good, thank you!!
