  • Retracted scissor structure
  • Expanded scissor structure
  • A potentiometer actuates a servo motor that turns a gear and moves a rack horizontally, expanding and retracting the scissor structure. 
  • Arduino wiring allowing user-controlled actuation of the servo motor
  • Gear and rack mechanism that drives the motion
  • Retracted physical model
  • Expanded physical model
  • Top view of expanded physical model
