My attempts at creating a working, combined mechanism were… not so successful. I created two mechanisms that worked on their own (see video), but because my initial plan with cardboard didn’t work. I hadn’t realized how difficult cardboard is to use in the way I was trying.
While staying up pretty late the night before it was due, I had jumped around to different solutions realizing later that I didn’t really have a plan after the first idea didn’t work as expected. In the end I succeeded in constructing two mechanisms but didn’t get them working together. Lots of lessons learned on this assignment which I eagerly applied to my midterm project (RGB Glove). Biggest takeaways: planning and research 🙂
