Elliptical Gear with no center pivot

A slight remix of PerryT's wonderful Elliptical Gear set. I liked playing around with the gears connected at the off-center pivots, and thought it would look cool to remove the center ring entirely.

Post-Printing

Make sure the holes are smooth and pop in the pins gently.

Correct Alignment:

Incorrect Alignment (right gear was rotated 180 degrees):
