For the manufactory assignment, I want to create a software that will let people laser cut linkage toys that can be operated by a single motor/hand crank. I might use a pass for this and complete it for my final since I think there is a lot to implement and my knowledge of this subject is very limited.
I have created app using planck.js and p5.js that allows me to place pins/connectors and paste images over linkages. I still have a long way to go in terms of designing preset linkages, making a user interface, and exporting parts to be laser cut.
Here’s a creature I made. He moves via a motor underneath his head.
Clearly I am struggling
