The Tellurian Solidworks model (shown) has advanced enough to see that the rotation and revolution of the Earth are working as designed.  However, some issues, perhaps intrinsic to Solidworks’ kinematics, have made the lunar movements somewhat uncertain.  A complication, that can certainly be ascribed to software, is a constraint that would allow one gear to drive another on the same shaft.  This does not mean the design doesn’t work.  It may mean that the ability to validate this movement may rely more on fabrication than simulation.
