The Origin of Skateboarding
On southern California beaches in the 1950s, when the weather wasn't good enough to surf the sea, people added four rollers to the planks and continued to find the tip of the waves on land, which was enough to be the origin of skateboarding. In 1962, a second-generation skateboard made of oak multi-layered panels, roller-skating steering bridges and plastic wheels appeared, and10 years later, polyurethane wheels were equipped on the skateboard, and the flexible wheels were wear-resistant enough to make the skateboard swerve swerved in a safe and easy way. And can easily run over the ground of small obstacles, a new era of extreme sports to come.
Process and introduction to the skateboard model using TINKERCAD
The display of skateboards
1. First make the two tilt plates for the skateboard
Because the tilt at both ends of the skateboard can be better controlled, so I do the two ends of the skateboard slightly up up to this can better simulate the real skateboard experience.
First, we can select a curved plate to make the angle size and length of the bend moderate, choose an arch to make its width as wide as the curved plate, after its alignment can be used with a square and just arch opposite the slope dlicing out. Figure 1 below
2. Making a skateboard ingress board
It's important that the skateboard can travel normally, in order to make the skateboard surface smoother and the tilt surface made in the previous step will be very smooth and horizontal surface connected
We select a box to make its thickness and the previous step to do the tilt surface is equally wide, align them and form a whole concrete figure.
3. Make a connection between the axle and the board
What way can skateboard stability be higher? That's of course designing with fewer parts.
The connection between the axle and the skateboard surface must be large enough to stabilize, so you can flatten a trapezoid and flatten and keep the narrower end outwards to keep it beautiful as shown below figure
Uses a wedge object minus its upper part to connect the axle and the base plate. Here's the picture
When making the axle, you can use one cylinder and two tires as simple as possible to do a good job in Figure
To make the skateboard more stable and reliable so use a hexagonal and matte technology shaft to secure the skateboard and wheels
4. Connect the skateboard to the figure shown in Figure 6
The above sections are all done, so connect them all in the right place.
