Solar System Orrery

Solar System Orrery 3D print model


This is my version of a 3d printed solar system orrery. I used a similar orrery from instructables as a reference but dit a lot of changes so it´s more comfortable to 3d print and assembly.

Materials needed:

  • 3D printing filament, various colors
  • (2x) M1,6x5mm screw
  • (2x) M4x10mm screw
  • (2x) M4 nut
  • (600mm) Rod 2mm
  • (1000mm) Rod 3mm
  • (250mm) Rod 4mm
  • (200mm) Tube 8mm
  • 12mm 6V Electric gear motor (30rpm is used in this project):

  • 6V AAA battery tray:


  • 3D printer
  • Soldering iron
  • Cordless drill
  • Pliers
  • Drills
  • Files
  • Craft knife
  • Super glue

I`ve also added two bending tools/templates you can use for the rods.

Here you can find a video of the moving system:

For all the gears and small parts use a 0.3mm nozzle!!! The base and the rest can be printed using a 0,4mm nozzle.

The biggest part is the Moon Gear which has a diameter of 206mm
