Animated Pirate Scenes

Sophomores worked in teams of 8-10 to design and produced an animated pirate scene using a motor out of a lawn reindeer that has about 5-8 RPM. The students each designed a scene that they wanted to animate and shared that with their team. The team voted on the final selection to develop and build. Each team had a project manager, industrial engineers, mechanical engineers, and structural engineers. Each role had very specific paperwork and drawings to complete prior to building. Some items had to be added as they got further into construction. They designed some items to be plastic printed or laser cut to get the mechanical or structural components working together as a system. Here are the results.
