Description

Unique guide to practical mechanical design principles and their applications
Contains photographs, drawings, cross sections, and 3D models
Focuses on practical applications and results, not abstract engineering theories
Author: Dustyn Roberts

The Making Things Move DIY Mechanisms for Inventors, Hobbyists, and Artists is a unique guide to practical mechanical design principles and their applications. In Making Things Move, you'll learn how to build moving mechanisms through non-technical explanations, examples, and do-it-yourself projects - from art installations to toys to labor-saving devices. The projects include a drawing machine, a mini wind turbine, a mobile robot, and more, but the applications of the examples are limited only by your imagination. A breadth of topics is covered ranging from how to attach couplers and shafts to a motor, to converting between rotary and linear motion.

Each chapter features photographs, drawings, cross sections, and 3D models of the components and systems involved. Emphasis is placed on using off-the-shelf components whenever possible, and most projects also use readily available metals, plastics, wood, and cardboard, as well as accessible fabrication techniques such as laser cutting.
