Mechanical Iris V2

I should be studying for my calculus exam tomorrow, but instead I designed another mechanical iris. This one has four leaves and was designed from scratch. No help from the internet this time. On my first attempt to design this, I tried to make it have 6 leaves, which I soon discovered is really tricky. It would require more than three layers of parts and a significant chunk of time to design, so I ended up with four leaves.

If this works on the first try, I'll eat my shoe.


  1. Did it work on the first try or did you get to tast your shoe?

  2. It'd be great if this had... I dunno... dimensions? :P
