Excellent example of rotary motion utilized to produce linear motion. Great demo.
Quite a lot being demonstrated in just one demo!
I think I would have put a 0-360 dial on the wheel, and scales on the two linear axis and call it a "Mechanical Sine/Cosine calculator".- Steve
Awesome thinking, Steve!
Looking at your video gave me the rotary solution I was looking for. As A non-engineer I wish I had this "motion encyclopedia" mounted above my desk!
Thanks Pete! Well, we post blogs as often as we can and we also mail out a monthly newsletter with white papers on linear motion and customer application examples. If you'd like to check it out, view the January issue here: http://bit.ly/eNJyhs We'll be posting February's newsletter soon!
