Today was time to focus on how the door would work. I had to build a crank shaft and piston in order for the spring to be pushed down. I have made special controls in the animation software that makes the piston push down the spring when you open the door.
the next step will be to decide if i will put the door into real life, or make a house in animation.

Below are some mechanisms that could be used to compress the spring as someone opens the door.
