Design: For the designing process, our team made whiteboard sketches of our final GoKart design. We gathered measurements and determined how our systems would fit onto the GoKart. We made a proportionate prototype to our actual design. We also received a piece of plywood to make our official GoKart.
Original GoKart Measurements
Original Measurements for my own System: Backrest and Side Panels
Prototype, proportionate to actual GoKart
Working out all of the systems of our GoKart
Measuring my body so that we can have measurements for the GoKart according to the size of the driver.
Our group's piece of Plywood used to make the actual GoKart. The duct tape represents our team's measurements for the body.
Deconstruction of Bikes: Once we had our measurements and design, we needed to find wheels for our GoKart. We originally used small wheels, but then decided that it would be best to use larger bicycle wheels. We took apart three different bikes, gathering materials we could use from them for the actual GoKart
First wheel we deconstructed. Now, we have decided not too use it because it is too small.
Using a saw to cut the frame of the bike, and acquire the wheels.
Our final three wheels that we will use for the GoKart. We deconstructed all of them from bicycles.
Assembly: Our assembly was split up into multiple parts. Our team members made different systems on Onshape and are now we are planning to assemble the systems together for our final product. So far, we have the body, wheel bar, back rest, and side panels.
