How do I fix my physics gear?

How do I fix the gear I made?%E6%93%B7%E5%8F%96

Hi @Liao_Verton,

that’s an interesting space! Here are some questions:

  1. could you provide us a share - link of your space so we can take a look at it?
  2. 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.

Hi @Liao_Verton,

I’ve looked through your space, and here are some tips for achieving your gear demo:

  1. make sure that gear items have 0 friction
  2. make sure that all cylinder items have 0 friction
  3. the restrict blocks can be placed after another because they are just setting properties. (so you do not need a run parallel block for them). You should also restrict movement

Below is an example with all 3 tips combined:

Example code

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!!
