Exercise 5 (Sorta): Failed Use of Veer™ Catalog

Filed under: Exercise 5: Mechanical Movement,Matt Thompson — Mattt @ 7:21 am

Just to get everything up on the class blog, here’s the documentation I shot of a failed attempt at Exercise 5. After hours of breaking balsa wood, cutting myself, and generally not getting anywhere, this is what I had.  What I was attempting to create was a  crank shaft that would move the woman and the trees. The woman would use a cam follower on an elliptical shape, while the trees were to operate on another crank shaft to produce an oscillatory motion. The woman kind of followed the cam, but it kept going out of line and falling down. The joints that were to move the trees kept breaking for some reason, so that never actually worked.
