A simple scripting example for CB1.0
« on: March 13, 2019, 08:04:37 am »
I am attaching a simple scripting example for CB 1.0 - as a demonstration of the practical use of script objects.  The related CB file is also attached.

Geoff,

Nice idea, excellent little model on which to base the tutorial and an explanation with the utmost clarity.

Nice job Geoff, I'm subscribed to this guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Fn-26Jmi5E&t=584s  where he describes, what you can do with these things.

Dear Dave

Many thanks for the reference, I had not understood the origins of this toy as the Trammel of Archimedes  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trammel_of_Archimedes).  But, with this background the project of building a working model is even more interesting, perhaps one with more sliders next time.

Hi Geoff

A few years ago now, I was looking for the math to make a Watts Link
to drive a Hydraulic piston (A Watts Link is an Aproximate Straight Line Generator)
Anyway I ended up at the Reuleaux Collection at Cornell.

Peaucellier Mechanism.

If I had have been more confident in my skills to make it, I would have made the Peaucellier Straight-line Mechanism
which is a mathematically perfect Straight line generator.

Some of the Mechanisms there are mesmerising to see operate.
