Automata_mechanism time!

For this week’s homework, I’m interested in hand crank and cam & follower. Inspired by Arthur Ganson, I want to explore using simple mechanism to create rich emotions. Although I’m also fascinated by Jansen’s Strandbeest mechanism, I’ll leave it to next experiment and design my own cute creature 🙂

This time I chosed 3D print to fabricate since all the laser cut time slots were booked…

But since it’s not a complicated structure at all, the cam & follower thing will be built with wood, and I’ll use 3d print with other detailed stuff…





And now I have to make objects to place on top of the up-and-down nails! Will have certain level of mechanism too, I hope 😀

I’m just a test.
