Geneva Drive in-a-box

Mon, 28 Apr 2014

A quick update on the Geneva drive mechanism. I’ve put together a few different size/depth combinations today finishing with this one which works smoothly and isn’t too bulky.

I’ve fitted the whole thing into a box and connected the output to a crank. Everything is running very nicely, just need to move the mechanism up a couple of mil so that the Geneva cross doesn’t bang onto the desktop. Once completed I’ll probably be releasing this as a bare mech before I go on to add a character to the box top.
