Introduction: Locomotive 3d Printing and Lasercutting
#StadslabRotterdam #making project,
As an Industrial product design student I have chosen FabLab Making as an elective course. I'm planning to make a working locomotive with an lamp in the front.
In this course are a few demands on the making of the product:
- A hinge of some sort has to be implemented.
- An electrical circuit has to be used to for example drive a motor, light, etc.
- The use of at least three machines: a 3D printer, a lasercutter and an electric machine of choice.
The beginning of this course is to find a suitable project. The project needs wood for lasercutting and plastic for 3d printing and electricity needs to be used. So I choose for something what contain all this requirements.
The parts I make for the locomotive am I gonna make by using 3d printing and lasercutting.
With this concept it's also important to know what isn't possible within the time span of this course. To set the boundaries a MoSCoW list is made.
Must have moving wheels.
Should have a LED light in front of the locomotive.
Could have Led in at the back of the locomotive
Won't have wagons.
Wood for the cockpit
Plastic for the wheels
Chassis made of wood
Light is a led lamp.
front made of pvc
3d printer, use stl file from solidworks.
lasercutter, use dfx file from illustrator.
Step 1: Begin shape design in solidworks
Step 2: make wheels for the back of the locomotive, and 3d printing it
step 3: make the side of the locomotive with solidworks and illustrator and lasercutting it.
step 4: make the under side of the locomotive with solidworks and illustrater and lasercut it later.
step 5: make the wood plates who are needed with the lasercut machine.
step 6: Cut an PVC pipe of 5cm in a piece of 90 cm long.
step 7: use a bicycle light and put the led through the hole in the front of the locomotive.
step 8: put al the pieces together like te picture
step 9: Use screws of 6 cm and 6 mm thick and pull them throug the holes where the wheels have to be placed.
step 10: print the pipe of the locomotive on the upside of the pvc pipe.
step 11: Glue all the pieces who are moving except the wheels.
