SketchUp animation – FineWoodworking

For a number of weeks I’ve been constructing a replica of a small Moveable Desk, circa 1800. The unique, made by the Seymours in Boston circa 1800, is situated in Winterthur. There are a number of transferring elements on this venture – primarily a drum with 53 very small slats. Drum grooves are 1/8 in. in width and depth. There is not a lot room for error in development because the parts are skinny with small joinery. This piece, not like most furnishings, required particular lodging for veneers and 1/16-in. or 1/32 in. These decorations pressured exact measurements and sizing of the element elements. Seymour items have been additionally distinctive of their utility of turrets to drum monitoring. These have been floor on a lathe, then hand instruments have been used to create a round groove for the barrel.

Here’s a view of the SketchUp mannequin.

Naturally, I spent a number of time in SketchUp engaged on the small print and “testing out” the motion of the drum, drawer, and hinged high. I just lately used a plugin to create a SketchUp mannequin animation. Keyframe is the title of the plug-in and under I present the ensuing animation. I believe these animations are one other manner to assist furnishings crafters perceive complicated design.

Right here is my ultimate construct…..albeit with out the sirloin head pulls. Ready for supply.

This is the video.
