Post from Fall 2013 - Independent Project Period

Fall 2013 - Independent Project Period | Projects | Prop Car | Updates

  • As of now, we are working on mounting the wheels and controlling how the car turns. Mounting the wheels is not as simple as we anticipated. We experimented with drilling holes, threading wire and other different mounting systems. The best model we came up with, was 3D printing a part to hold the wheels wire secure on the base. It is a triangle with engravings for the wire to sit in, it also has screw holes to secure it. We are printing the peices right now. We are controlling how it turn, by a servo turning the front wheel. The way we are doing it, is by mounting a servo on the back to a wire, which attaches to the wheels wire(which comes up through the base). It is the most precisly turning model.
