The UGears Gearbox is an outstanding kit from the series. Its key advantage is, of course, is that its purpose is very obvious. It is a 4-speed manual gearbox that is a part of a car transmission mechanism. The role of a gearbox is to transfer torque from the engine’s shaft to the vehicle’s wheels.
The model consists of the following parts: Gear Shifting Level, Layshaft with Gear Couplings, Reverse Idle Gear Bearing, Drive Shaft, and Actuator Handle. The four gears that are featured in this model are I, II, III, and Reverse, with III being the fastest one and Idle allowing both clutch gears to remain uncoupled. The clockwise rotation of the Actuator Handle rotates the Layshaft and Drive Shaft. You can manually select the speed and watch the rotation. Switching to Reverse will make the Layshaft and all the gears rotate in the opposite direction.
One of the key innovative traits of the UGears STEM-lab series is the augmented reality (AR) feature. To activate it, simply download the STEM Lab app on your phone and tablet and then point it at the newly-assembled set. The app will reveal all the ways in which the mechanism is used in real life.
Each UGears STEM-lab box features a Pocket Model’s Study Guide, a colorful and detailed Manual, wooden boards with pre-cut puzzle pieces, and additional materials, such as, for example, rubber bands. All sets are made from high-quality plywood and do not require the use of anything else that is not included in the box.
