Title: Magnets - Veins
Post by: Rocket on February 13, 2019, 06:15:53 AM
Hello Art,

I hope all is well with you.

I am watching your video named Magnets-Veins.  It is really great to see those veins in action.
During the video you say:  It looks like Monarch, are you referring to the sculpture named Monarch by David Roy?

If so, I am wondering if I could use the Auggie Vector Processor to experimen t with the pawls (like in Monarch) to try and understan d the pawl movements and how the magnets in those pawls make them switch (dance)?

Very complex subject.. .but I love to learn new stuff...

  I was refering to that, but Im pretty sure Roy doesnt use magnets but instead
relies on gravity for his vane operation . I once figured it out but have since
forgotten exactly how that works. He's a fine designer that Roy fella..

   I found the vector processor helped me see connectio ns, but it isnt fine enough
to fully do such motions. Im still dwelling on a solution to that kind of thing
