Little Box : Initial Brainstorming for Mechanics

<< Back to the Little Box blog

We are looking into using beveled gears to raise the lid of the box. We think this will be an efficient and seamless way to lift the lid.

Our rough sketches, shown below, involve a servo and 2 beveled gears. One will be attached to the servo, the other will be attached to a rod that runs along the back of the box. The rod will be attached to the lid with a hinge or flange.
