In honour of Valentines day, I've created this cam driven kinetic sculpture that reveals a message through an intricate mechanical motion. The curved segments are carefully positioned using the specifically design geometry of the cams. With 3 different symbols based on 3 different cam and follower positions, a beautiful message is revealed.
Made almost fully using 3D printed parts, along with some bearings and screws, this whole sculpture can be assembled in just minutes and can bring a serious wow factor to any birthday, valentines day, anniversary, or any other occasion where it's appropriate to share the simple phrase 'Eye Love U'
Here is the video that shows how easily this mechanism can be assembled!
