the IRIS project
by overflo, published
From there it was a long road but eventually my own design worked out and i managed to create a mechanical iris that can be opened with a stepper motor.
Now we have a welcoming system at the metalab

this design is based on a screenshot i took from shaies iris, as mentioned above.
the whole design was then started from there.
when i was finished i found out about the talkshopbot forum and contacted chris.
the design then evolved a little more (the iris closes without gaps) but at no point i took any of the existing .dxf files. of course i asked chris if he was ok with me releasing my design here and he was fine with that as long as he was mentioned.
oh yeah and video of the one i made
sorry for the multiple posts, there is no edit button, unless i missed it...
also heres the link to the shopbot forum where you can download the dxf files of his version
