Hello. Here are some photographs of things I have been doing recently, accompanied by a bit of text describing each photo
|The start of my frame to test out the mechanism|
|Gluing the cube|
|The block will have some tubes attached which will have guide rods inserted into, which will give the rising block a path to follow (up and down)|
Now I need to find a way to move it up and down and make it pause. I am thinking of a large wheel and a lock mechanism but will need to pro-type. I am also thinking about using pulleys but am not sure how to incorporate this.
I am concerned that I am going about this in a really poor way. I'm not sure who reads this blog but if you have any ideas or think that I am going about this the wrong way, please let me know. I don't want to spend too long as I am making it in order to help raise money for an arts centre. The sooner it is completed, the better.
