Mechanical Design aids
« on: April 16, 2009, 09:04:43 AM »
Hi folks,
   Since I last posted we've managed to get another project using Inventor and I was wondering if any of you guys use any low-tech solutions to aid in building mechanisms etc.

The reason I ask is that after reading an article about Bang & Olufsen and how they build prototypes using Lego I hit upon the idea of using a set (or sets) to aid us with our latest project which we've had a really hard time visualising.  The mechanism we've been asked to produce (which is based on this) would be easily recreated using Lego (I think)

Does anybody else use Lego in this way? (or am I just using it as an excuse to play with Lego and call it my job? ;) )
