Weldment and Metal Fabrication
With every episode, we are getting closer to the final prototype of our Hot Rod Baby Buggy. Last time, we talked about propulsion technology. In this episode, Jeremy starts designing the chassis using weldment features and sketch techniques. He also visits a metal fabrication shop to learn about some of the methods that'll further help in building our project.
The topics we cover in Episode #4 are:
Building the chassis: Jeremy builds the base of the chassis from scratch, using weldment functions in SolidWorks. He gets an exact representation of the parts in 3D to visualize how things will look, fit, and behave.
Metal fabrication shop visit: We order a custom welded frame for the chassis. And also take a look at the precision pieces for our baby buggy tank treads.
Community vote: Should we design our baby cockpit like the retractable top of a convertible sports car or a fighter plane?
