The first model of the flower was too stiff for the servo to work. Also the box was ugly. I did really like the idea of wood, though, because of the warm ambiance it gives off. I thought the ribbons might look nice but they look terrible and desperate. The flower was too big to get a lot of movement out of a small servo, and I hadn’t considered until after seeing this that the string should not be out in the open like that all the way down to the base. There should be some kind of protection.
I redid it to make it look a bit more planned and smooth. See the final product in the final post for this.
