After some development and testing I would like to introduce the Printable MCP ( Mousetrap Car Project ). This models the popular long arm version of the venerable old project but is now fully printable. The .STL for this project can be purchased from TeachersPayTeachers.
To demonstrate how the Mousetrap car is assembled I used the Exploded Assembly work bench. This work bench is not part of the add-ons installer included in FreeCAD. You can find the workbench on github. I hope to use a version of this animation in later instruction videos.
I have been working on my own Strandbeest. It is basic but elegent. In the end it will be focused on ease of assembly and tested to work. Here is the first leg held together temporarily with small tacks. it works better than I expected.
