Gerry's World

A glimpse into my life

Me demo-ing raising and lowering the projector screen by pulling the strings.

Projector Screen

July 18, 2022

Things I did:

  1. I first tried prototyping using clear plastic transparency sheets looped around the aluminum tube, but that had too much friction and also was dangerously close to peeling off the wall.
  2. Next, after finding that string works well, I prototyped using cardboard, aluminum flashing, string, tape, etc.
  3. Finally, after having a good idea of the design I wanted, I CADed / 3D printed the parts.
