## Four bar mechanism / speeds and accelerations

Speeds and accelerations in the kinematic pair B and the drive bar.

## Pendulum waves animation + Explanation

How It Works animation of a Pendulum Wave. The animation is simulated in Autodesk Inventor 2013, in Dynamic simulation environment.

## Newton’s Cradle in Autodesk Inventor 2013

Real simulation using Dynamic simulation environment.

## Car Jack in Autodesk Inventor

In this Autodesk Inventor tutorial I’ve created an alloy Rim, globally based on BMW M5 dimensions. I use only common Autodesk Inventor features, so this makes a great model for beginning Autodesk Inventor users. Autodesk Inventor is used for the entire model, in the beginning I’ve placed some renderings from Autodesk Showcase, but as you can see the renderings from Autodesk Inventor itself are very good as well. In fact the ambient shadows in Autodesk Inventor look very good and are very fast to apply to your model. I show how that’s done in the end of the video.

## Robot Gripper Mechanism in SolidWorks 2012

Robot Gripper Mechanism modeled in Solidworks.

## Automatic sorting machine – Mechatronics student project

This machine was created as a project for the subject Construction & CAD, at the Mechanical Engineering faculty in Skopje, by a team of five students.   It is a machine that is sorting two types of plates. One of the plates have holes. Our project was to develop a machine that will sort out these plates automatically. We have came out with this solution, which actually won the first place out of 25 other machines.

## Solidworks and MATLAB / Simulink simulation

In this tutorial you will see how we can make integration of Solidworks and Matlab/ Simulink using the SimMechanics Link. We will make an example of Simulink simulation using a Solidworks 3D model.

## PID Control of Robot Gripper in Matlab / Simulink

PID Control of Robot Gripper in Matlab / Simulink using Solidworks model.

## Simulink and Arduino – Serial Communication

Serial communication between arduino and simulink. I am using the potentiometer to control the position of the cylinder’s piston.

Using the Simulink’s Arduino IO library so that Simulink communicates with Arduino through serial port. In this example, two analog inputs (potentiometers) and one digital input (push-button) control the Joints motion of the 3D model which was imported from Solidworks.

## Arduino Motion tracking: Glove controlling 3D model

My Final Year Project at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Skopje, Macedonia.

## Mechatronics Final Year Project – Interaction of real arm movements with 3D computer models

This was my Final Year Project at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Skopje. It objective was to construct a device that will allows interaction of real arm movements with 3D computer models. I integrated three different fields in one device, i.e. mechanical, electrical and computer engineering: – Solidworks to design the 3D model that represent the movements of the arm. – Arduino Mega 2560 card for connecting the real world with the computer, potentiometers, accelerometers and some wiring. – MATLAB / Simulink to program the control of the 3D model

## Arduino Game Controller

Playing Need For Speed video game using Arduino as a game controller.

## Cable animation in Solidworks

Animation of a cable / rope in a Solidworks using Motion Studies.

## Arduino PWM DC Motor Fan Speed Control

This is a demonstration of controlling a DC CPU Fan Motor speed using PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). With the potentiometer I am controlling the Duty Cycle of the Pulse Width Modulated signal and that signal goes into the base of the transistor, which actually controls the amount of current that flows in the motor.
