Many of the cams were worked out quickly, but the mechanisms that posed more of a challenge were those that incorporated more complicated motion. I wanted to include a carousel-like component that displayed both rotational and vertical motion. Below are the process sketches of the initial design.
This was a massively important step in our design process as it allowed us to try out features like the carousel and a drum component without worrying about having the polish of a finished piece. It was also helpful in figuring out what placement of mechanisms made the most sense to have a compelling, complete scene that could truly come to life.
