DECISION.

I have decided to while away my time making a 3D waterwheel. I popped one in yesterdays post but it was naff. I went onto the internet for inspiration and found an overshot wheel that I like the idea of.
I modelled one quicklyish. 

This would do at a pinch but the elliptical section spokes look a bit poofy on something so utilitarian. They don't fit either but that is but a ten minute job.



I think these rectangular section ones look better but need less taper and maybe a heavier section. I'll have another look after my siesta.
Next comes the hard part, getting it to turn with virtual water. It's all good fun.
THIS IS BETTER
I have made new spokes, these are 'T' section and are more in keeping with the job.

Not too shabby. Near enough is good enough etc.

    1. Rachel, see water you will but it won't do what I want. I will probably end up faking the job......It's all smoke and mirrors anyway.

  2. Good, something of what you do that I can understand. It's beautiful, let the water flow.

    1. Pauline, I wish I understood it. I'll see what I can do about the water.
