I'm doing some boring stuff atm, so I had to make a quick mentalDetour and do this little experiment to relax my mind...
The options took more time than the gearDrawingEngine itself, but what took the MOST time was me playing with it!
It's almost hypnotic... maybe I should make a screenSaver version...
Press and hold your mouse to choose the position+size of the new adjacent gear... use SHIFT and CTRL(Mac
PTION) keys for additional actions...
-> SHIFT - creates a coaxial gear
-> CTRL - creates a pulley system (pressing space with CTRL allows you to move the pulley)
For undo, pres "u".
Tip: to increase the speed of the gears, make a small one, then hold down SHIFT and make a bigger coaxial gear (it will have the same angle speed as the little one but greater circumference - hence more teeth...)
You can repeat this several times to increase the speed
