Globus 3D Wood Model Kit

At Ugears, we like to think that each of our new models is a wonderful surprise and amazing gift to anybody who loves beautiful mechanics. We want to give more with every model we invent. With this model, Ugears gives you – quite literally – the world. Presenting the Globus, a stylized model of Earth with two sets of decorative continents, a rotating mechanism, and curious little extras that make the model even more interesting.

The main module of the model is comprised of two parts: the globe and the platform with the mechanism. The sphere of the globe sits on an axle inclined along the same angle as the axis of the Earth. Like most Ugears models, the Globus is animated by means of a rubber-band motor. A lever in the base pulled once clockwise all the way will fully wind up the mechanism. As soon as the lever is released, the gears begin their work. If you want it to rotate even slower, you can manually turn the Globus and watch the continents float slowly by.

In addition to the main module, the model comes with two interchangeable extra modules - the Shuttle and the Sputnik – which connect to the main module via the planetary gearing and rotate almost twice as fast as the globe and make almost two full spins in one pull of a winding lever.

The Globus is easy enough to assemble and very interesting to observe in motion. The unique mechanism and original design make it a clever gift and the perfect decoration for any home or office. The Globus from Ugears is the model you will want to return to again and again. Take your Globus from the shelf and dream about all those amazing places you plan to visit one day.

UGEARS is a 2014 Ukrainian startup with a growing worldwide reputation for producing unique, self-propelled, wooden mechanical DIY models, puzzle boxes and educational toys. Each UGEARS model has its own mechanical action that will amaze and delight.

UGEARS model kits come with everything you need for assembly. All parts are laser pre-cut into a high-quality plywood board for easy removal and assembly. Motion is accomplished using rubber bands, gears and gravity. Detailed color diagrams and step-by-step instructions are provided in 11 languages to guide you through the assembly process. No glue, special expertise, tools or equipment are required. Customer service is available 24/7, with spare parts provided and shipped free of charge.

UGEARS models are works of art, marvels of mechanical engineering, and surefire conversation starters. Most models have real world analogues, others are imagination brought to life. These eye-catching beauties are ideal for display in the home or office, but they are so much more! Each UGEARS model and puzzle box has its own unique and enchanting mechanical action, to delight your family and friends. Constructors will find satisfaction in bringing the models into being with their own hands, experiencing the magical moment of "birth" when the model shows the first spark of life.

UGEARS models and 3D puzzles make the beautiful world of mechanics more comprehensible. You will be able to touch every piece, every gear cog, and discover first-hand the workings of simple machines. Experience the thrill of self-propelled mechanical action that doesn't come from an electric socket or battery. Take a voyage to a previous century, to an age of elegant machines, fine detail and old-world craftsmanship, and rediscover the pleasure of understanding how things work.

UGEARS make a wonderful hobby for constructors, and a thoughtful gift for just about anyone in your life. Our mechanical models and puzzle boxes come in three skill levels: EASY, MEDIUM and ADVANCED. Warning: our beautiful, timeless machines and mechanical puzzles can be addictive, and you may find your collection growing as you move on to more challenging builds!  UGEARS products require no glue, but we like to say there will be bonding—the bonding of family and friends working together to bring these mechanical marvels to life.
