Get Your Move On! In Making Things Move: DIY Mechanisms for Inventors, Hobbyists, and Artists, you'll learn how to successfully build moving mechanisms through non-technical explanations, examples, and do-it-yourself projects--from kinetic art installations to creative toys to energy-harvesting devices. Photographs, illustrations, screen shots, and images of 3D models are included for each project. This unique resource emphasizes using off-the-shelf components, readily available materials, and accessible fabrication techniques. Simple projects give you hands-on practice applying the skills covered in each chapter, and more complex projects at the end of the book incorporate topics from multiple chapters. Turn your imaginative ideas into reality with help from this practical, inventive guide. Discover how to: Find and select materials Fasten and join parts Measure force, friction, and torque Understand mechanical and electrical power, work, and energy Create and control motion Work with bearings, couplers, gears, screws, and springs Combine simple machines for work and fun Projects include: Rube Goldberg breakfast machine Mousetrap powered car DIY motor with magnet wire Motor direction and speed control Designing and fabricating spur gears Animated creations in paper An interactive rotating platform Small vertical axis wind turbine SADbot: the seasonally affected drawing robot Make Great Stuff! TAB, an imprint of McGraw-Hill Professional, is a leading publisher of DIY technology books for makers, hackers, and electronics hobbyists.

This book represents an invaluable and up-to-date international exchange of research, case studies and best practice to tackle the challenges of digital technology, computer-aided design, 3D modeling, prototyping machines and computational design. With contributions from leading experts in the field of industrial design and cultural heritage, it is split into three parts. The first part explores basic rules of design, design models and shape grammar, including the management of complex forms, and proves that innovative concepts may be derived from organic models using generative design. The second part then investigates responsive design, describing how to manage the changing morphologies of buildings through pre-programmed mechanisms of real-time response and feedback embedded in inhabitable spaces. Lastly, the third part focuses on digital heritage and its capability to increase the interaction and manipulation of object and concepts, ranging from augmented reality to modeling generative tools. The book gathers peer-reviewed papers presented at the eCAADe (Education and Research in Computer-Aided Architectural Design in Europe) Regional International Symposium, held in Milan, Italy, in 2015.

How did somebody come up with the idea for bridges, skyscrapers, helicopters, and nightlights? How did people figure out how to build them? In 3D Engineering: Design and Build Your Own Prototypes, young readers tackle real-life engineering problems by figuring out real-life solutions. Kids apply science and math skills to create prototypes for bridges, instruments, alarms, and more. Prototypes are preliminary models used by engineers—and kids—to evaluate ideas and to better understand how things work. Engineering design starts with an idea. How do we get to the other side of the river? How do we travel long distances in short times? Using a structured engineering design process, kids learn how to brainstorm, build a prototype, test a prototype, evaluate, and re-design. Projects include designing a cardboard chair to understand the stiffness of structural systems and designing and building a set of pan pipes to experiment with pitch and volume. Creating prototypes is a key step in the engineering design process and prototyping early in the design process generally results in better processes and products. 3D Engineering gives kids a chance to figure out many different prototypes, empowering them to discover the mechanics of the world we know.

What types of robots will the future bring? How do biomedical devices help patients? Have you ever wondered how your phone works? In Engineering: Cool Women Who Design, readers ages 9 to 12 meet three women who are working hard in the engineering field. Elsa Garmire has designed many devices that use lasers and light. Amy Kerdok designs medical and surgical devices. Anna Stork co-founded LuminAID Lab, a company that produces solar lighting products for the developing world and beyond. Engineering combines high-interest content with links to online primary sources and essential questions that further expand kids’ knowledge and understanding of a topic they come in contact with every day. Nomad Press books in the Girls in Science series supply a bridge between girls’ interests and their potential futures by investigating science careers and introducing women who have succeeded in science. Compelling stories of real-life engineers provide readers with role models that they can look toward as examples of how it can be done.
