Reuleaux Models

Recreating our ENGINEERING HERITAGE through Kinematic Models.

What inspired you to make this project?:
In researching various mechanisms, I found modern engineering books lacking. Upon finding Francis Reuleaux's "The Constructor" I truly enjoyed it's hands on approach. This also lead to the discovery that he created hundreds of models to show and explain kinematic theory. There are only a few hundred left in the world, most of them are on display at Cornell University. I decided to recreate them as close to the original design and quality as possible.
