Descrizione prodotto


Cabaret Mechanical Movement takes the would be maker from light mechanical theory through the basic mechanisms to tips on construction of simple moving toys, sculpture or automata. Examples come from the world famous collection of Cabaret Mechanical Theatre. Includes over 200 B&W Illustrations but no detailed plans - you need to use your own imagination! This is a slightly updated digital edition of the paper book which has sold over 12,000 copies since being published in 1998.

Chapter titles: Who, What, Why?, Some Principles, Levers, Shafts, Cranks, Cams, Springs, Linkages, Ratchets, Drives & Gearing, Control, The Checklist, Bibliography, The Back Cover, Index.

From the back cover: Making automata is hard. Making other sorts of three dimensional objects can also be hard, but the extra dimension of movement seems to add a disproportionate amount of difficulty.
For most people, especially those untrained in engineering skills, getting to the point where making mechanical devices is easy, can be a long and frustrating task. Then again, there are many people who have a sound understanding of engineering but can’t even draw a horse.
These things can be learnt. This book does not teach you how to draw a horse, but it does remove the mystery that surrounds the world of mechanisms and the business of making things move.
Cabaret Mechanical Movement contains a lot of theory but it’s also packed with practical tips and ideas for making your own automata, moving toys or mechanical sculpture.
This book is published by Cabaret Mechanical Theatre, a museum that pops-up all over the world to delight its visitors with witty examples of the automata makers art.

2.0 su 5 stelle A waste of my time. 4 dicembre 2016
Di Dan Mays - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is a tough book for me to critique. I rated it a rather mediocre 2-stars,but that is being generous on my part. I bought the book to garner some insight into construction methods and assembly considerations. None were to be found. What was included was mostly a litany of name-dropping of European automata builders of the past. In addition, there was a strong overtone of self-promotion by the Cabaret Mechanical Theater. I suspect that most people who purchase this book are not really looking for that information -- I wasn't. To be fair, there was a pretty good series of pages explaining the basics of gears, levers, cams, etc., and how their movements interact at a very elementary level. I got the impression that this book was written by some academic and not by anyone actually making automata. The book comes off as a rather dry textbook which completely avoids any how-to information. This is especially apparent with the examples of automata mentioned. Neither the text or the drawings reveal anything substantive. At best, you wind up being only teased. Perhaps I should disclose that I am a skilled tradesman of some 40-years who grew up working on all kinds of machinery and mechanical apparatus. I can figure this stuff out, but choose not to reinvent the wheel when I can avoid it. This book was a waste of my time.

*** I later saw that a 2003 review by Natan Solar adds credence to my textbook comments: Mr. Natan says: " I use this book in my kinetic sculpture classes and it works well." If this is the best textbook available for this class -- it sounds like some of those few, dreary, abysmal college classes that I wish I could purge from my memory.

Seems aimed at schoolies learning mech principles, very simplistic and short. Not worth the expense
