Make something big
Our Fablab received an invitation from Xi'an's makerfaire. The theme is to participate in the drift car race. The approximate form of competition is that everyone builds their own car and drives their own car at the venue. After I google a little bit, I found out a "cake car" and immediately fell in love with this idea. So I'm going to make a flowerpot car to race.
About the engine system we have is a Carzy cart, so all I need to do is make a flowerpot shell for it.
I also found a 3D model of CrazyCart and used Rhino to make a diagram of the final result, like this
I first built a model of a flowerpot with SketchUp. But when I want to put my built models together to see if they are inappropriate. It was found that was inconvenient to either combine the models in the software or export to cuttable DWG files.
So I used Rhino to rebuild the model again.
In addition to the bracket, it is also necessary to make a cover for our flowerpot.
I chose a 2440mm x 1200mm x 18mm wood/4mm milling cutter The specific parameters are as follows:
We use this type of wood: 2440mm x 1200mm x 18mm by taobao
Cutting it out, I took all the parts back to the space with cart and started assembling
I also added a bar light on the cart for a fancy style.
After the test assembly was successful,we shipped it to Xi'an Luckily, Makerfaire volunteers in Xi'an helped me to put on an outside cover cloth. Eventually, he finally became a flowerpot cart, and I even bought a gorilla mask and a petal head cover to match it.
