Function Art, Part 4

Posted 08-26-2012 at 07:06 PM by arch2b
I started painting yesterday. The inside of the channel was painted with a flat black to keep a dull finish. I paint the exterior with a satin black. The process starts off with light coats and each builds on that.

Functional Art, Part 3

Short follow-up this time...

For the club title, I printed half a dozen options at least before settling on the final selection. I believer it's a good fit for the club, it's mission and personality. It was not the easiest option for sure but I feel it fit the best.

Functional Art, Part 2

Posted 08-25-2012 at 12:47 PM by arch2b
I immediately dove into the 'art' portion of the build which is dressing the bridge channel. It starts with of course the 2x2x36 aluminum channel. This sounds like a lot of surface area to work with but the limitations of working within a 2" vertical dimension gets tricky.

36" just fits the width of a two tile wide RCP 50cm track. These come in various widths and can easily find a length that will fit a 3 tile wide track however that limits you to only 3 tile wide tracks...

After completing my 1st custom Giro-z Bridge I was given the opportunity to manufacturer an improved version I learned a lot of fabrication lessons on mine that will hopefully make this one easier to build and perfect right out of the gate.

First build


To begin with, I order 90% of this stuff from Amazon simply because it was more cost efficient. I'm sure i could source these materials...

June 13, 2009: The Day I Blew Up Mini-ZRacer.com

Posted 06-13-2009 at 03:02 PM by arch2b
with a couple click of the mouse, i managed to toss mini-zracer into utter confusion this morning.

i got up relatively early today and decided it was the most opportune time to complete my forum reorganization. i had spent the better part of an hour shifting subforums around, creating new forums, removing some old ones. in a routine task of relocating posts from a subforum to be removed to an existing subforum, i selected an administrator tool option instead of a moderator tool...
