Kinetics Pump

Media: Aluminum, nylon, rubber, brass and graphite

Class or Personal: Class

The assignment in my Kinetics class was to design an object that moved. I decided to create a water pump because I was interested in exploring the mechanics of fabricating a pump that would intake and dispense water. I researched different plans for various pumps and worked to figure out how I could fabricate the required valves. Using aluminum, nylon, brass and rubber I used a lathe and a mill to construct my object. The pump I designed worked perfectly.
