Product Description
In 1901 sponge divers off the Greek island of Antikythera discovered an ancient ship wreck. In the wreck, the encrusted remains of a geared mechanism were discovered. This ancient mechanism turned out to be a device for astronomical calculations. While some of the functions of the device have been determined and widely accepted, research continues.

Tony Freeth and Alexander Jones have proposed some gearing that would produce readouts for the positions of the inferior planets Mercury and Venus as well as the superior planets Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter. See http://dlib.nyu.edu/awdl/isaw/isaw-papers/4/ for details.

This model is the beginning of my attempt to model and 3D print a working Antikythera Mechanism. This model is by no means a complete or an exact copy of the mechanism. It currently includes the input handle and the Freeth and Jones proposed gearing for Mercury, Venus, and the Sun anomaly. Modeling work is ongoing. This model has not yet been printed.
