Playing a bit with Bunkspeed to see what it looks like.

Still missing leg and some vital mechanics.

Continuation.

28 August 2010

So presentationdates are still not set.. Need to synch this with every one whos going to attend, like supervisor, opponent, examiner, jury etcetc.. So now it looks like it could be later than September.

Still grinding the late nights in school, trying to get everything down in blueprints so I can start building, and just get it done. A lot of stuff needs to be solved, like how the legs move, attachments and so forth. If I do it properly, it could be possible to just pop in a motor and some electronics and then give it a go.. We'll see about that though.

Also, the proportions dont seem to be there yet. Have a full scale print of it on my wall, which looks nice and all, but with this 185cm virtual dummy, it doesnt look right.

The sitting surface has an average of aprox 40 CM above the ground, (tilted), which is pretty much what a normal chair is at. We'll see what i can do about it.

Some pictures with a real dummy.

Presentation date preliminaries

24 August 2010

So, had a chat with one of the other supervisors, and it looks like the presentations will be on either the 22nd or 28th of September. That gives me 30 to 36 to finish my design and build the model, hopefully do a small film clip and photograph the winch in a good setting.. Plus write the report and do the slides for pres.

All this and to graduate a week before my 28th bday. Keep your fingers crossed.

Still needs a smart motor housing, batterypackthing, back leg and solid solution for the hinges to the legs.. It's slowly killing me inside though.

The experiment with the lamination of the veneer went pretty bad. The compressor overheated so the veneer didnt dry enough. So after I removed it from the mold, it's been twisting around its own axis. Well see if we can sort it with faster glue (karbamidglue?) and better vacuum bag.

Now I need to get a hold of someone who is good at bending and welding aluminium pipes.

My concept in progress. A winch without a captive spool, that is self tailing. Modified capstan winch if you will.

http://iddqd.se/exjobb/woodwinchsmall.jpgPeople tend to build their frames out of almost anything. But the basic principle stays the same.

So why do they build these machines?

Fun on water without a boat.

Fun on snow without a slope.
