FINAL PROJECT: Mechanical Reproductions
Week 4: Putting the pieces together for the final presentation
1. Painting with matte & metallic acrylic paints
2. Laser cutting last little details
3. Improvising after the laser cutter that you booked for 2 hours is broken and the one working machine is booked for everyone else’s finals and thesis projects. Went to Blick and bought a bunch of wooden dowels and a cutter. Luckily, I had some wood scraps from my mid-term project and some test printed gears, so I was able to scrape together the final details.
4. The moment that it came together, along with an illustration for the inspiration and model.
Figuring out how to make the gears actually work together to create more movement and integrating it with the pipe line.
