This project involved the construction of an Automaton box with various movements depicting a shark attacking a cartoon character. I completed AutoCAD drawings of my design. I then extracted the drawings from AutoCAD, brought them into Adobe Illustrator and lasercut each of my pieces from 3mm plywood. The Automaton is operated manually by a hand operated crank. Although this project required some trial and error and the finished piece would get stuck at times, I found this an interesting and beneficial project to complete.
