Cam / Cam Dodo Mechanism – come and get it!

I've completed the parts and instruction for the cam / cam mechanism. This second of two mechanisms I've been experimenting with for an upcoming Dodo model.
The pdf file is available for premium members to download.

In the previous mechanism the main shaft moved in a circle, this time it moves up and down. It's an interesting mechanism to try out and could be easily adapted as the core of your own designs. If you're a member you can download it for free at the website. As an experiment I've added the instructions to the blog post about the model so everyone can see them. I hope you find it interesting.

Collections are groups of existing models bundled into packs of related models. There are seven on the site at the moment with more being added all the time. They range from the Logic Goats models, seen here through the bridges set to the Paper Locksmith Collection. All sorts of paper fun. All the models come at a special price. And as a member (or subscriber) you get your usual discount.

Keep up to date.
