This package is an educational project I have created for my product design A level. I have been fascinated by Thingiverse and the brilliant creativity it encourages since I discovered it about a year ago. It acted as my inspiration for this project, and I hope you can all get enjoyment out of this concept and help to develop it further.
The project is built from the ground up around modularity. The three main parts that can be modified are-
This concept allows for an almost unlimited number of possibilities regarding flight profiles and dynamics, creating a system to educate about all manner of different principles.
The package also allows for the use of cO2 canisters for a more powerful and exciting launch, though the project can be entirely functional without these. A trigger mechanism is included however some items cannot be printed and need to be purchased. These include-
-A 2mm Carbon fibre rod (To connect the tail and the fuselage
-A metal scribe
-A 11mm diameter spring
Assembly of the product is intuitive, and side specific assembly interfaces should prevent incorrect assembly of crucial parts.
I hope you enjoy the project and I'm looking forward to seeing how it evolves with the contribution of the wonderfully creative Thingiverse community!
If you have any questions about the project, its assembly or want to contact me about further modifications I'd be delighted to hear from you!
REMIXES URGENTLY WANTED FOR MY FOLDER!
Hi guys, for my portfolio it would be amazing to prove the spirit of thingiverse and open source as a concept by displaying some of your remixes in my folder. My deadline is 9th of May, and any remixes would be really appreciated. The changes do not have to be structural- aesthetic changes would be brilliant to see.
I'm planning to continue developing this project after I've finished my A Level, so any support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all!
