7457 Just finished its first season, and we are trying to up our quality.
I had a lot of help from some other teams and I wanted to make something that could last our team a long time. Unfortunatly our team doesn’t have access to a CNC machine or welding, so making it would be more costly. I had to make it with brackets and things.
It is made primarily of 2 x 1 x 1/8 inch aluminum tubing
It has two wood bases
It can hold ten batteries
When equipped with our chargers it can charge 4 at a time
A power strip will be added
Can be tipped back like a dolly for easier transport
Haven’t had the opportunity to prototype it, so I posted here for some first glance feedback.
Here’s the link to the Onshape.
It isn’t accurate to what it would be in reality, but my job was to make a functional for seasons to come battery cart. The combination of all the materials would be ~$580. A lot of this is due to the brackets prices and things. In the final unwelded version I would make some gussets as well.
Took some inspiration from 6090’s cart.
Please let me know any design changes you would see as useful.
