AM 106: Pendulum & overlapping action Part 1

We are studying overlapping action this week. Here is my latest work in progress. Our assignment is to use this pendulum rig to demonstrate the principle. I've found in watching the lecture and working on this assignment that its a pretty easy to understand the principle but putting it into action is not so easy. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Man, this reminds me of our first 3D class that one summer! Sigh...

Anyway, I think it works well at the beginning. At the end, I think it takes way too long to settle. Remember weight distributions, and try keeping that consistent. Pick a weight you think the pendulum is, and then matching that in each of the joints accordingly. Might be easier if you give it a heavier weight?
