"Mac N' Cheese" is my second in a series of "illusion" themed automata. The mechanism uses a single N20 100RPM gear motor driving gears, cams and levers to perform the "illusion" of a mouse consuming a cheese makers cheese.
"Mac" is a cheese inspector, and "Cheese" is his nemesis, and a press of the button animates Mac's ongoing difficulty with Cheese's appetite.
This 3D printed automata is the second in a series of "illusion" themed automata I've been working on. The model was inspired by positivelycreated's "Say Cheese" automaton along with our grandkids "bug eyed squishy frog" bathtub toy.
