Hi all!

Starting this thread, just as a shot in the blue (no there are none like it that I can find).

I'm studying Product Design at Bournemouth University and obviously I'm heavily influenced by Mountain Bike design etc.etc.

So thought I'de start this up as a place for any designers, of any kind, artists, industrial designers, product designers, graphic designers, bike designers and all the rest!

Somewhere to showcase an design work you might have done and a place to discuss any design that interests you and throw ideas back and forth Smile

--------------------------------------------------------------

So, I'lll start!

Got bored this afternoon, and as I had no decent footage to edit, thought I'de work on my Solidworks skills. Here's the result Smile


And starting work on a GoPro HD model Smile

EVERYONE IS WELCOME! Post up! Smile

190g before weight reduction (honeycomb design at the upper teflon part's back and little holes at the roller) and allen bolts... don't think it'll save more than 1g but i was bored

thanks... probably redisigning the pedal as soon as the university gives me a break, it looks sick but i'll try to make it at least 1mm thiner and 50g lighter (about 450g now)

software is rhinoceros (really basic and renders are not as detailed as solidworks)

EDIT: oh and the pedal is designed to run on bushings (may be teflon but i'm not sure... it's the easiest material to get here)

400g, not bad at all!!

Ahh yeah I know Rhino, not a fan I'm afraid Razz

Did this in Rhino a couple of years ago, not my best, but it was like my first experience with 3D modelling lol Smile



and Rob, yeah I'm sure theres a way, would be nice to! I'm not sure that the in-program rendering software in Solidworks is detailed enough for that. I might play around with the rendering software in Uni and see what happens! Smile

i think just 2 pairs... 1 for my bike and 1 for the university (if i have a free homework)... but the final pedal may be completely different from this one

updated pedal body... bad news is that making just 2 or 3 pairs is too expensive... so it'll be a long time till i make my pedals

EDIT: pedal body gets thicker at the impact zone so it'll last more and won't have unwanted weight like if i made it that thick all over the pedal

Variable wall thickness on the pedal? No you're getting clever Razz

Haha, have you guys seen the POM Iphone headcam adapter thing? It's getting a lot of hate but I definitely think it's a fairly solid concept!!

What do you think?
