Autopack and PocketAuto

Two products. One design.

UPDATE (August 2020):
The Solidworks tutorial has now been added to the resource in Powerpoint Show and PDF formats.

A pair of physical resources aimed at primary learners but also useful for teaching mechanisms at KS3 and KS4.
The resource contains a 96 page step-by-step Solidworks tutorial on how to model, render and animate the Automaton as well as how to make working drawings and process these to make laser cutting files.
The full 3D model for each product is supplied in Solidworks format with editable parts and they are already mated and animated.
Also provided are the laser cutting files to make your own if you dont wish to work through the tutorial. These are in Adobe Illustrator format and ready to cut. Alternatively they can be converted to .DXF to use in your program of choice.
