Double Crank Box Characters

Sat, 28 Jun 2014

Further to my previous post about Mr Cool’s video. Shamelessly stealing his idea I put together a Too Much Coffee character printed at 80% full size and mounted it on a double crank box. While I was trying this out I noticed a T.Rex waiting around on my desk so I mounted her on the other double crank box that I had.

Both worked rather nicely! Even though they have a slightly shuffly gait I can certainly recommend them as projects to try! Thanks Mr Cool!

Check out both of the models on Instagram below.

    also can you think of a way to make the arms swing to make a more fluid walking movement i tried but couldnt find a way to make it work.

    i like the walking t-rex as im sure there are a few projects that you can make walk with the double crank mechanism
