This week is going to be a fresh start. I have a design project from school which is satisfying to watch but really serves no purpose, I'll have a video up soon for anyone that wants to see and if anyone is interested I can upload the files to print. The background on the project is that we had to generate a 4-bar mechanism to bring a pen tip through 3 points in a specific order, this was to show the class how we can use these types of mechanism to convert rotary motion into complex shapes. We used this site to generate the mechanisms and its mesmerizing to watch!
This was one of my first tries and I might just be a nerd but it's hypnotic watching it go through its cycle. I'll post an update when I have the design finished.
