In 'Making Things Move', Dustyn Roberts explains mechanical design principles and their applications in non-technical terms, using examples and a dozen topic-focused projects.
The book is a wealth of information:
* Introductions to mechanisms and machines
* Finding and using materials such as metals, plastics, & wood
* Basic physics
* How to fasten and attach things in a bunch of different ways
* Info on different types of motors and how to use them
* Converting between rotary and linear motion
* Using off-the-shelf components
* A wide variety of fabrication techniques
* How to have things made, if you can't do it yourself
* A primer on Arduino micro-controllers
* There is even a section on automata!
This is an outstanding book with a ton of useful material presented in a very accessible way. I believe it to be a classic-in-its-own time for makers. I wish I had owned it years ago!
I've just started building projects using Arduino hardware and software combined with a little bit of robotics. I know enough electronics, software, and woodworking for those projects, but had a real gap in mechanical design. This book filled that gap perfectly, providing all the theory I needed, the names of all the parts I wanted, plus loads of pointers to where to buy those parts.The book also provides just a few wonderful projects showing what you can build with your new-found knowledge.
Note this is not a robotics book. Instead, it's about more conventional (and useful) machines involving parts such as motors, gears, belts, and linkages.
This book, however, is not a programming or electrical design book. One reviewer criticized the book's lack of depth in those areas, to which I respond, "Didn't you read the title?!" So, if you think, this book or any book could sufficiently cover mechanical, electrical and program design, expect it to be an encyclopedia. For what this book is written for - mechanisms for the DiY crowd - Making Things Move beats expectation.
I'm one of those people who are interested in doing many things but always had other things that took up my time. Business management, biology, and cancer detection paid the bills and was almost all I could handle.
I'm retired now and too old to take on college level engineering courses, and I'm more interested in my photography hobby anyway.
The reason I purchased this book is because all my life I've had a special invention circulating around in my brain. Problem was that each test unit I built broke as soon as I turned on the power. Still, maybe my brainstorm invention can actually be made. This book, Making Things Move, is more in line with what I can handle. Even if it doesn't help me make my brainstorm it's sure to provide fun activities.
