mechanical sketch gears

Filed under: Exercise 5: Mechanical Movement,Joe Iloreta — jilore @ 11:22 pm

I created two gears, one with a piston action turning circular rotation into a vertical and front back oscillating motions like a piston.

From that motion I turned it back into a back and forth linear motion with another assembly of gears on the post of the piston.

To test the movements I initially modeled them in 2D, and then moved to 3D space, learning a lot about precision in the process.
