Hey everyone! My students really enjoyed doing this project in class. Enjoy!
Jason Slingerland, Onshape
This project involves sheet metal parts, assemblies, and mounting standard components to your design.
Experience how to design, plan and assemble a project.
10th Grade and up
Duration of project:
Onshape features used:
Sketch, Extrude, Sheet metal model, Move face, Hole, Fillet, Split
I used Move face features to get the sheet metal part to have nice round numbers.
I used standard(ANSI) fasteners. Feel free to use the metric equivalent.
Equivalent chassis can be 3D printed instead.
Imported parts that you will probably need to replace with your own:
You will need either a motor shield or replace the servos with 5v DC motors to make the project move.
