    Hello everyone,

    I was searching for trigger mechanisms when I came across your site. Quite impressive collection of information here, and I especially like the alternative power source discussions.

    One quick question. On the trigger mech forum, there are some simulation videos, what software was used to generate these kinematic simulations?

    Ivo,

    What software were you using when you generated this image?

    Hello, Captowel I think they are using Google Sketch Up.

    Go to Google and at the top click "more" then click on "even more" should find it half way down.

    The program I use is called Working Model (it's a paid version I got from a friend), there used to be a slightly different demo version of the same from the same company called Interactive Physics, but it seems it's no longer available.

    Pretty cool app, but you need to know a little bit of Physics to get it moving right. Took me some time, but little by little I've poked my way around to what you saw in the trigger section. Hope you can scout around google and find a download, definitely worth it!

    Got here a bit late, but welcome to the forum.

    Ivo
