Scene tag

Slight variation on lever type escapement found in watches.

Everything is powered by one motor, spring has some damping and moving parts have 0.05 friction.

It's only proof of concept, there are some variations in oscillations amplitude and period.

Good concept. Typically you can decrease the time step to improve the accuracy by setting Sim.timeDelta = 0.001 (default is 0.01) in the console. I tried this and the escapement jammed. If you can get the escapement to work at the smaller time step, then it may be more accurate.

"if you are going to upload this to algobox, make sure that you let people know that it does it and how to fix it (Sim.frequency = 100 for Algodoo and Sim.timeDelta = 0.01 for Phun)." - gradyfitz

details: sim.frequency = XXXXX

how long do you create it?:huh:
It took me about 1 hour, mostly tweaking

This is really nice! you really understand the movement and how the timing of the "push" should work. very cool. Although I think you can cut yourself some slack and turn the dampening and friction down. in a watch, the friction is almost nothing and the spring has almost no dampening. that way you can turn the torque of your power source down. Just a suggestion. it doesn't make any difference. its amazing! :tup:
