Project 1380

by Graham A


I wanted to create the look of a mechanical Galton Board (Bean Machine or Quincunx) using Python after my first project was shelved, due to being unable to be completed in the required time frame, with my current skill. This was more difficult than first thought, as to ensure success, there are a lot of factors that need to marry up, such as the ratio of the pin locations, ball size, weight, gravity, speed of ball upon impact with pins, etc. With a few tweaks, this will be much better, even so, it is relaxing just watching.
