Proof of Concept

All the parts are cut, sanded and ready for assembly. The bottom platform is made out of wood. It sits on top of a plastic shelf, where the motor shaft protrudes out of the centre. The motor shaft sticks out through the platform and a flange with an attachment is secured to it, in order for the spinning disc to be easily attached to the motor. A smaller circular piece of wood is placed beneath the acrylic spinning disc to help level it better. To test out the placement and animation, I used 18 styrofoam balls, cut at different heights, which will create the illusion of a styrofoam ball appearing out of the disc.
