Re: Action v: Screw and wingnut

I ended up using a pulley with IMA of 2 to get enough distance. More complexity, but it works.

Re: Action v: Screw and wingnut

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, a big wheel on the end makes it worse. The wheel turns quickly but the screw in the center turns more slowly.

Re: Action v: Screw and wingnut

I'm having trouble moving the wingnut far enough. I have a string wrapped around the screw with a weight attached. When I let the weight go, it rotates the screw and the wingnut moves along, but it only makes it about 1cm before the weight hits bottom.

Re: Clarifying "Initiates the next action..."

I'm still confused about the "initiate the next action" rule. If a golf ball rolls down a ramp (3.c.ix) for 20 cm and then lands on the top of a wedge that causes a ball to start rolling (3.c.xi), is that legal?

Or would the golf ball in 3.c.ix have to hit another object that then hits the wedge?
