# Help with 6 axis

Hello i need help to get this working if its possible, will try explain what i have come to.
I have 2 dc motors that I want to control six different axes,

if motor 1 spins right and motor 2 spins left then the first axle will rotate.

if motor 1 spins left and motor 2 spins right then the second axle will rotate.

if motor 1 is stoped and motor 2 spins right then the third axle will rotate.

if motor 1 is stoped and motor 2 spins left then the fourth axle will rotate.

if motor 1 spins left and motor 2 is stoped then the fifth axle will rotate.

if motor 1 spins right and motor 2 is stoped then the sixth axle will rotate.

Ok i hope someone understand this, this would work if i know how to build it, I have a couple of gears but its seems impossible.

Can anyone help me, show me or explain how exactly i can do or give me another teory to make this ?

Interesting! 😛 I'll move this to the Mechanical Section.

By 6 axis you only mean rotation among the x-y-z, and another 3 planes?

Usually, the term "6 axis" would mean rotational AND lateral motion on the x-y-z axes.

maybe i ment wrong, i have made a quick image

those thick black lines are round tubes to spin ... my 6 axle
and i whant to spin them one at the time with 2 dc motor if its possible

Yes, it is possible, but you'll need to use some complex gear configurations. Lets wait for the mechanical or robotic CEans to comment.
