I am a huge fan of my Spine and I never hesitate to tweak and upgrade it. Now for this project I decided to teach myself to 3D Desgin.
3D Design a front for the Spine with slots for LED Lights. I am looking for an aggresive look.
I will appreciate any feedback or tips.
Let's give the Spine a new look.
Ok guys. So here is how I invision the front of the Spine. It's a simplistic view but I had to sketch something as I was having trouble to start off the 3D Model without any plan.
More updates coming up!
Hey there makers!
I have spent some time on designing the new front based on the sketch from Update #1. One learning form this process is that even though the sketch was useful for making the initial forms, I deviated from it quite a bit.
Behold some print screens of the 3D Model (only one side).
Now I need to print it and see how many things need to be tweaked to reach a perfect and secure fit :)
Let me know what you guys think! Updates will follow.
I really like it I have to say! Looks a bit like an angry, sport-like oriented spine. But we all know you love speed Costel, don't you? ;-)
Indeed I do! Thanks for the encouragement. Soon I will post a print screen of the 3d model.
Hmm Constantin, can you make sure it is possible to fit this front with the design for the Front Stand....?
Maybe we should integrate this.....
@Frederick it sounds like a good idea. I will try my best :)
Did you print it out yet? I would like to know how thick those walls are..
Hey Robin. Yes I did print it. For the test print I made the walls 2mm think. But I think I should go more thick. At least 4mm is my initial guess. I will upload some photos of the print today or tomorrow.
Allright! Anything between 4-6mm would be perfekt I think.
Please do upload some pics of the print!
Side question : can anyone give me the center distance from motor to gear on the spine? I don't have a board yet but would like to calculate what gears would suit me the best.
