Towbar-Bike-Racks additions

Postby hpbmo » Sun Apr 26, 2020 10:12 am


I made some additions for our new towbar-bike-rack. E-Bikes are quite heavy, so we need am ramp. Now we can easy push the bike onto the rack.

With using 'part design wb' for creating the base elements, cloning with 'draft wb', mirroring with 'part wb' and 'fasteners wb' I get all the stuff for the ramp:

Because I don't want to carry around the bike-rack, I added two small wheels.

The wheel mount is sliced with 'part - split - slice apart'. So can I print it on my 3D Printer assemble all elements and put it at the bike-rack. The blue one's are the designed parts. The others are cloned, mirrored, sliced, etc. For the exploded view I changed the placements manually.

As soon as all parts are printed, I will add some pictures
