Turning Turtle – Coming Really Soon.

Tue, 24 Jul 2012

#Truelove and I are away for a couple of days from tomorrow. I wanted to add a new project to the site before we left and the tumbler has a few days work to go but I reckoned I could complete a project based on an idea I had using the flexible joint. Michael42er designed a flexible joint for connecting two models to each other. It occurred to me that it could be suitable for converting a drive so that it goes round a corner.

By connecting two if the zig-zag flexible joints together I made a joint that turns a drive by ninety degrees.  


I fitted the drive into a box and added this tortoise to make it into a character based project. I've put all the parts together and completed the project photography. It's getting late here so I'll post the model tomorrow morning meanwhile, I hope you enjoy the animation.
