Flip Face – Mech #4

More Flip Face Fun: Animation test for mechanism #4.

I’ve jumped past the original Rack and Pinion idea straight to this. The lower gear is a six tooth section from a forty tooth gear. The pivot point at the bottom is where the centre of the gear wheel would be. The top gear is an eight tooth gear with one tooth missing. The top gear rotates a full 180 degrees as the bottom gear is moved. This’ll be a fun mechanism to implement in card!

    Simplicity is the way to go

    Simplicity is the way to go Rob.

    I get accused of over engineering jobs, so its nice see someone else going through the motions of working out a simpler solution.

    I admit to being a bit paranoid about about over-engineering, I always think that someone is going to say "why didn't you just..?" and then demonstrate some super simple, elegant solution. It keeps me awake at night ;-)- RI
