These are some preliminary steps to modeling in Rhino.

Selecting the correct scale is important so the end model

is the right size.

Step 2: Beginning to Model the Wheel

These slides show how one creates wheel spokes, beginning

with a cylinder, to creating spokes by arraying the cylinder

around a central point so that they form a base for the rim.

Step 3: Creating Wheel Spokes

Picture of Creating Wheel Spokes

The wheel spokes need to radiate out from a central

point. This section shows how that is achieved.

Step 4: Adding a Tire and Joining It to the Spokes

Picture of Adding a Tire and Joining It to the Spokes

When adding a tire, it's important that

it's centered on the spokes.

Step 5: Adding an Axle

How to add an axle so that it's centered on the wheel.

Step 6: Creating the Second Wheel

Show an easy way to create a wheel second wheel

so that it is straight and lined up on the axle.

Step 7: Joining the Wheel and Axle

Steps for connecting the wheels to an axle.

Step 8: Creating the Wagon Floor

Creating the wagon floor is simply a rectangular

box attached to the 2 axles. The wheels will not turn.

Step 9: Rendering Your Model

That's neat :) Do you have any photos of the printed project?

Thanks, glad you liked it. I actually have not printed it out, mostly because there are no Maker workshops around where I live. Since you are so interested, I will have it printed out and I'll post pictures, but that might take a couple of weeks.
