We're bending the 1/8'' aluminum plate to make the entire shape, but we're still not sure whether we should split the whole shape into two parts and waterjet them on two separate aluminum plate or just waterjet the whole part on one plate. Still need to figure that out on solidworks.
.........(ONE WEEK PASTS)
We bent the 1/8'' aluminum plate to make the 'seat':
And motor support after several changes:
And rear wheel :
Oh yes, and for the cushion, I was learning stuff at the solar ev team downstairs, and we were waterjetting pink foams last Friday night so there were some leftover foams and I borrowed one piece:
Brake lever and thumb throttle on our aluminum tube ;p:
Another thing on the list is to bend the aluminum tube for the steering, that's the one in the above picture....
Our budget review till now:
|motor||1||turnigy aerodrive 6374-149||76.53|
|rear wheel assembly||1||200x50 Rear Wheel Assembly for Chain Drive Razor E200 (Versions 5-27)||25.99|
|front wheel||1||200x50 (8"x2") Front Wheel Assembly for Razor E150||23.99|
|Pedal/Sensor||1||Thumb Throttle with 48 Volt Power Meter||17.99|
|Ball Joint Linkage Shielded, Steel, 1/4"-28||4||6058K25||11.76|
|Alloy Steel Threaded Rod Plain, 1/4"-28||1||92580A107 (3ft)||4.78|
|Aluminum 3/4" steering shaft||1||9056K693 (no use)||7.39|
|1/2 aluminum tube (vertical)||1||1658T45 share Andrew (4 ft)||3.5|
|7/8 aluminum tube (horizontal)||1||9056K723 (1 ft)||7.39|
So we still have 46.68 dollars left... We still need to get the brake cable and the switch.... And we haven't done the electrical part yet, though it looks like we have everything we need in the lab but still we are saving the money in case something breaks....
Two more weeks before the rolling frame inspection!!!! We were late for the waterjet submission for this week cause our steering problem suddenly propped out so we needed to fix that :p But we've finished the technical drawings and managed to fit the parts on one single sheet (1/4'') Shall wait till next Tuesday!! And hopefully we can put everything together and do a test run this week.
