Ornithopter Frame (Rubber Band Powered) by Bioluminescence. A first pass attempt at printing the frame of a small, toy, rubber-band powered flapping flying machine. This small ornithopter is based on the tutorials I've seen for wooden ornithopters on Instructables, most particularly on the tutorial by Captain Molo Known IssuesPlease note, this is WIP - mostly because I couldn't get it to reliably fly.

It prints - it assembles - it flaps in your hands. But when I try to fly it, it manages only a few flaps before stalling. I suspect that wobbly axles are losing me most of the rubber-band power, but it could be anything at this point. I also suspect that massive weight savings could be made on future iterations of this ornithopter - the one I've uploaded here is SOLID. Ornithopter. How About Orange. It's the last stiffened fabric project and then I'm moving on! I wanted to try an oversized, realistic fabric rose just for fun. Make a template with six petals. I traced around a dinner plate and a small bowl on the back of some ugly wrapping paper. (Tip: if the paper is too curly, iron it flat and your life will be better.) I've included my feet so you can admire my cute socks. Prepare some stiffened fabric.

See here for how I did this. Using the template, cut three flower shapes from the prepared fabric. In the first flower, cut a slit along one of the fold lines to the center. On each flower, overlap the two petals adjacent to the slit and secure with a little glue. While they're drying, curl the double-petal and single-petal cutouts. Heat the remaining flower petals one at a time with your iron and curl the edges back.

At this point I stacked the pieces to see if they looked nice. So I cut off the point. Mecha. Cam_1. 上下運動/Up and down 上のカムは1回転で20mmの動きを作ります 基本的にはカムの上にコロのついたロッド(棒)を立てればそれが上下します が、回転はロッドを上下だけではなく横へも動かそうとします ロッドが金属ならばもちますが木の場合、ねじれに弱く破損しやすいです 金属の場合でも受けが木だと、その受け部分を削っていきます The top of cam move 20mm in a turn. Basically, the rod on the cam move up and down whem it stand up. But turn is not only up and down to move side. A metal rod is no problem, but a wood rod weak of twist. When use a metal rod, a wood receiver is shaved. 私は上図のようにアームにコロをつけて使います 回転方向は決められますがカムの急な変化を拾えます、またテコの原理で動きを大きくできます ただし、コロは直線運動しません、カムの変化により受けの場所も変化します コロを付けない場合 棒を立て、楕円をまわすだけですと棒に摩擦がかかります 、上図のように腕を付けます 間接する事で無理の少ない動きになります クランクにすれば動きは大きくなりますが木という素材にはきつすぎます A rod has friction when raise the rod and turn ovaly.So I set arms top of the figure.

When use a crank movement is bigger than cam,but it is too hard for wood. このように太鼓を叩きます、これを並べカムの角度を変えればリズムマシンができます 上下運動は重力で下にもどりカムの回転は上へ押し上げます スプリングなどを使えば同じように左右前後の運動に変わります LIke this, strike thedrums. It can make rhythm machine lay cams and change the angle. The spring can move right and left. 方向が違うだけで基本は同じです. 6 Ways to Reuse Plastic Bottles.
