Curved flip pop-up mechanism

Post by Jean-Paul » Tue Nov 13, 2018 2:03 pm

I'm exploring possibilities with arched curves, stretching and tension.

This flipping curved mechanism is sort of inspired by the Cars 3 pop of the Pixar pop-up book. Tried to simplify it and added some curves.

- If you would like to give it a try yourself, I have a template ready that you can download and print: https://tinyurl.com/yd25ytct

I had to try this. Multiple mechanics in a row in opposite directions:

For a more visual effect, I’ve experimented with adding more complicated shapes for the flats:
