Dustyn Roberts, "Making Things Move: DIY Mechanisms for Inventors, Hobbyists, and Artists"
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0071741674 | 368 pages | PDF | 8,1 MB
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 mousetrap powered car, 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.
