Laser Cutting

Fastening Practice

We laser cut and assembled displays to practice riveting, tapping holes, using the heat gun to bend the acrylic, and fastening using a nut and bolt, and a captive nut.

Geneva Mechanism

Partners: Janet Butler, Polina Smirnova

The Geneva Mechanism translates continuous revolution of the drive wheel into step motion of the driven wheel. Our Geneva Mechanism was chosen to create a step motion of 1/5th of a rotation for each complete rotation of the drive wheel.
