[TC13] Wind-Up Box Pusher - POV-Ray animations added

Recommended Posts

For my entry, I decided to make something nice and simple... And this is what I cam up with:

It's a wind-up motor inside a 6x6 box, that moves the legs of the Technic guy, creating the illusion that he is pushing the box.

As mentioned in the video, I have also made instructions for this, which are available for free on Rebrickable.

POV-Ray render:

Cool idea! I like it. Fun little desk model. :thumbup:

Thanks, I was actually thinking of making some kind of desk stand for it, and possibly a motorised version too.

I love it! I feel like this could be an interesting concept to build upon, but the model as it is is marvelous.

Thanks, I've already started thinking how I could make a bigger one - at CCBS scale.

Clever. Where did you get the wind up motor?

Thanks, I can't remember exactly where I got mine, but the wind-up motor comes from 5 sports sets from 2002-2003.

Thanks, when you've built it, could you post a photo here? (or on Rebrickable in the fan photos section) - It would be great to see other peoples versions.

I will, but I first have to order some parts including the mechanism!
