The pivot and barrel of a hinge are always required, but other parts can be modified. The pivot is moved outside of the opening. The hinge uses extenders to connect itself with the complex moving forms.
- [Instructor] In this video,…we take a look at strategies for designing,…engineering a realistic hinge.…Why do we do this?…Well, hinges are important any time there is a door…or opening that needs to operate.…Let's review the basic parts of a simple hinge…to better understand what they do.…Now, this first example assumes…the door and case are both flat.…We'll do a more complicated example next.…On the right side, we've got the two basic leafs…which also continue to form into these knuckles…which are connected and then there's a pin down the center.…
The entire assembly of the center section…is called a barrel.…Now, if you look on the left, we typically will have…something fixed and then the door part that swings.…The important thing to understand here…is all rotation occurs around this straight axis,…you cannot have it curved.…And typically we have one part that stays still…which is the fixed part of the cabinet…or, in our example, the spaceship,…and then the canopy or door that moves around that.…In our next example, which you hopefully recognize,…
