First comes first: our designs, let me show you them.
|Helena's idea sketches|
|My preliminary design|
In order to prevent the whole thing from torquing when weight is placed on it, we decided to make the frame two levels high (we're going to use a lot of 80/20 in this frame).
This drawing is a little more to scale for what the actual frame will look like: 1 block = 4 inches.
And, of course, in order to balance out the cart, the back wheel has to be huge.
At this point, we've ordered some materials (see also: WHEEL), but we haven't gotten to building anything yet. In the coming weeks: looking forward to cutting 80/20 and attaching it with our prototyped connectors. Lazzorcutting!
