My Second Mechanical Iris (Mi Segundo Iris Mec�nico)





Introduction: My Second Mechanical Iris (Mi Segundo Iris Mec�nico)

Well, after my first attempt at a mechanical iris yesterday, i wanted to make another one this time with a complete open back plate.
So i review my drawings, and i change the size of the leaves, so the track pins travel in a path always within the back plate.
and here´s the result of todays build!

Bueno amigos, después de fabricar mi primer iris mecánico ayer, quede con ganas de hacer un segundo iris, pero esta véz, con el fondo abierto completamente. Revisé mis dibujos, y cambié el tamaño de las hojas, para que los pines que corren en las ranuras, viajaran en una trayectoria que estuviese siempre dentro del anillo trasero, y aquí está el resultado.

    Este es mucho mejor que el primero, lejos. Me sugiere que yo podría hacer un plato autocentrante para mi torno.

    This is much better than the first, far. It suggests to me that I could make a self-centering front plate for my lathe.

    Muchas gracias, y no es mala idea lo del plato autocentrante para el torno, ojalá incursiones en ello, sería un proyecto interesante.


    Wow, very cool!

    Yep! Are you going to make a step by step instructable for this?

    And just wondering, do you use a translator or do you know both spanish and english?

    well, i have enough pictures to make a step by step, so now that you mention it, i will make a step by step.

    And abouth the language, i do know both, im from Chile, in South America, so im a spanish speaker, but i know some english too.


    Ah, good luck with the intrsuctable!

    Very cool, how do you figure out how many leaves/what size they are? I assume those two things depend on eachother, but is there a calculation you use based on the overall size and how many leaves or something?
    I am going to try one right now out of foam core and cardboard as an experiment.

    Ohgh ¬¬, too small pic, here it is at full size.
