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 Each chapter features photographs drawings and screenshots of the components and systems involved Emphasis is placed on using off the shelf components whenever possible and most projects also use readily available metals plastics wood and cardboard as well as accessible fabrication techniques such as laser cutting Small projects in each chapter are designed to engage you in applying the material in the chapter at hand Later in the book more involved projects incorporate material from several chapters Making Things Move Focuses on practical applications and results not abstract engineering theories Contains more than a dozen topic focused projects and three large scale projects incorporating lessons from the whole book Features shopping lists and guides to off the shelf components for the projects Incorporates discussions of new fabrication techniques such as laser cutting and 3D printing and how you can gain access Includes online component for continuing education with the book s companion website and blog makingthingsmove com Hands on coverage of moving mechanisms Introduction to Mechanisms and Machines Materials and Where to Find Them Screwed or Glued On Fastening and Joining Parts Forces Friction and Torque Oh My Mechanical and Electrical Power Work and Energy Eeny Meeny Miny Motor Creating and Controlling Motion The Guts Bearings Bushings Couplers and Gears Rotary vs Linear Motion Automatons and Mechanical Toys Making Things and Getting Them Made Projects
