Brainstorming for the final project (12/17/2018).
In this course, we learned a lot of skills for making animations.

The final project is for making an engineering animation for a mechanical system that includes both kinematics and dynamics simulations. For example, ball rolling on a slope with an elevelor controlled by a cam. A rack gear pushing barrels up to the top of donky Kong slope. Gear box connected to wheels of a toy car that slipping on a slope. etc..

Today could you conduct brainstorming and start making parts?

Final submission for an animation for this project is due by 5pm on next Monday (12/17/2018).
