Mon, 19 Jul 2010

On todays agenda – work on the database for the flying pig website and, much more fun, further experiments on a theme of belt drives.

I've adapted the belt driven model from earlier on to use the mechanism from yesterday. The rotor that the arm is attached to is now connected to the body by a simple hinge rather than a fully rotating axle.

The movement is smooth and free and it gives the model a real mechanical steam punk look! I like it!
