Mouse Machine Progress Report

Your rating: None (2 votes)

Having completed the mechanism for the mouse machine it was time to attach the mouse!

I mocked up a mouse adding a hinge to his waist so that he can flex back and forth. I fixed his feet to the box top and his hands to a rotating sleeve fitted over the mouse's crank.

The model works well, you can see a video on Instagram here. I made some final adjustments to make the movement more pronounced. I've extended the mouse's crank and raised it up slightly then moved the mouse back a little.

The new movement has a more exaggerated feel, like the mouse is really putting his back into the cranking!

Now that I happy with the design I'll lay out the parts and add colour.

It is interesting over and over again to pursue the development of a paper model.
