3D model description

Hi Folk

i like challenges, so i decided to join the S.T.E.A.M. - MakeItFloat 

This is my first challenge thingiverse. So I started with my colleague to find a good mix of real solutions for transport of heavy Wight. We found something. This is the first concept or our total 3 ideas for this challenge. Hopefully we have enough time to generate, print and test all 3 concepts.

Focus on this Concept:

1. Print less parts and support structures as possible

2. Carry heavy load -> 2 Euro coins (diameter: 25,75 mm, thickness: 2,20 mm, weight: 8,50 g)

3. Priority: load > design

4. Must be moveable in real test

At first I decided to generate some boxes for the coins. 10 coins will fit into a red box at the moment. Boxes can be stacked together later.

I want to print this on a print area of 200x200x180mm with PLA.

Files, Instructions for assembly and print settings will come in the end.

End – 19.06.2015


Update of concept

STL file prepared

Motor added (rubber band solution)

Now, I need to print and test :) 23.06.2015
