Things are falling in to place. Now all i need is to get the pieces together and get the building of for real.

Ive sent some blueprints to a machineshop, for the legs and mainframe to get built.

And i continue to build in solidworks

Back on track

13 September 2010

So after 4 days of computer-issues, I finally got it going again thanks to a good friend.

Thankfully, the only thing i lost was time, and not any data. Paranoid feelings andd time-machine saved my ass.

But today it was back to printing and cutting. After some woes, it worked. (click to enlarge all the images)

With this I made a mockup to get a feel for the total volume.. Printed 3 orthographics views in scale 1:1. Remember that I said that the proportions didnt feel right, the last time i made a 1:1 print out? Well, I made some alterations, both because i wanted to be able to fit the electronics and mechanics easier, and to make the size fit the function better.

I think I'm pretty satisfied at the moment. It was even comfortable to sit on the mockup next to it. Wish i had a cameraman. Or even better, a model so i didnt have to show my ugly mug on these pics.

I didnt post this because of the cheesy invert-effect. It was because the linework on the printouts got a lot clearer instead of the cluttered surrounding, so please have excuse it.

Trying to keep a civil tone, but f**k it.

My computer crashed last night when working in windows. So now neither windows or OsX will boot. I've moved the harddrive to an external chassi, so I can use it as an external harddrive, and do all my work on the schools computers.

But still..

Impregnating piece of crap.

Well, it worked!

Atleast partially. The spool need better friction against the rope, and some bigger edges to prevent the rope from drifting off. I however, would like to claim the function-model a smashing success!

Took longer than it should, due to the workshops being filled with the freshmen and their introduction to the workshop-course, but thats ok. I'm not supposed to be here anyway, so who am I to complain?

I'm just a bit bummed that I didn't do it earlier. Better late than never, right?

And yeah, i had to butcher my old skateboard for one of it's wheels and lathe it down to a good diameter. I'm seriously considering using something similar for the final model. Love how the graphics are still there.
