Get a closer look at my project.
I began by deciding what size to make the robot. This would determine the size of the zoetrope.
I designed the components in the computer using Adobe Illustrator. Even though this is mostly a two dimensional software, I was able to plan how things would layout.
I was so happy that my project was awarded a ribbon from Sherry Huss, one of the founders of Maker Faire.
This project began as a commission for Maker Faire Orlando 2017 and has taken on a life of its own.
I was inspired by other stroboscopic zoetropes created. Especially those that tell a story.
I utilized a number of skills and techniques for creating the final design. Laser cut and etch parts, 3D printing, CNC router cutting, sculpting, molding and casting, wood work, painting, and mechanical design.
