Dinosaur Mash-up Progress Report

Sun, 11 Sep 2011

I've made a few small changes to the parts so that everything fits together better. Once done I printed out the bits, and put them together whilst watching Dr Who with #1 Daughter. 

The paper model is made from two separate modules. The Geneva Drive in one box and the Watt linkage in another. They are connected together with a drive pin. I've glued the two parts together then added a couple of elastic bands while the glue dries. The egg sits on the top. 

The egg is a little small for the box so I'm going to remake it 20% larger. After which I'll be fitting a dinosaur into place. 

This side view shows the Geneva Drive. The output from the lower drive shaft is connected to the Watt Linkage in the next  box.

    How do you connect the Geneva

    How do you connect the Geneva stop with the watt linkage with a drive pin?  I would like to see a visual.  Thank you!
