05.2 mini-project: structure & mechanism

due Thursday 4 March

Build the structure and and demonstrate the mechanism for the form machine.  The machine should use motors (dc gear motors, servomotors, etc.) to drive a mechanism (or mechanisms) to produce some physical / material form.   For example, a motor could drive a wheel with a cam and a cam follower to convert rotational motion to linear motion, or a 4-bar linkage, etc.   See “00. Looking Outwards” for examples of mechanisms and motion.
