more on the motion controller project
This polycyclic aromatic chain is the stiffest/thinest thing I have come up with yet. Perhaps it could be made to work. However I am starting to consider something else. Take a look at this picture:
I am starting to get a nice little library of diamond-type stuff that is pretty much scaled to work with each other. So I am thinking of rebuilding the Fine Motion Controller at a scale where I can use these cams, gears, rods, etc. In fact I am thinking of making all sorts of similar scaled parts, out of diamond wherever I can, then I will have all these ready made parts that can work with each other. Oh yeah, of course I would offer to add them to the NE1 part library too, then you could have a set as well.
