Spring Loaded Cannon

Postby JuanKGZ » Sun Aug 04, 2019 2:58 am

This cannon was made as an introductory project for mechanical/mechatronics engineering students. It shoots little glass marbles. For now all is left to model is the spring, the assembly was done in A2+, and screws added from BOLTSFC. If some design decisions seem counterintuitive it's because it was originally modelled in Inventor and I was kinda used to it's workflow.
