As you may be aware I have been attempting to model an R/C Helicopter loosely based on the Outrage Velocity 50 Model. I started this project using Shaper3D on an iPad Pro. However, I scrapped that version as I sold off my iPad Pro.
I build a custom desktop with the intent on modeling often. I chose Fusion 360 as the software. Below are some renderings of the work I have been doing on the R/C Helicopter. Most of this work has been over the last few nights after work.
Here we have the mount for the Raspberry Pi 3 computer. This mount as you see it is a work in progress and may change. The thought here is to have a screwless design as well as have lots of open space to help keep it cool.
Next up is the Arbotix-Pro Robot controller mount which will also be mid waist and the lower portion of the mount for the Raspberry Pi 3 computer. This is the concept as of right now, there is a chance it could change once I model the Raspberry Pi 3 mount and see how the cables fit/connect.
Now back to modeling. Here we have the top hip plate modeled. We also have the battery modeled and the back plate modeled. The backplate is the assembly point for the upper and lower plates. I thought it would be a good place to add some text.
I have decided to name this robot RH-H1. The RH is for Robotics Hobbyist, the H is for Humanoid and the 1 is because this is the 1st revision or first Humanoid I have built.
He we also have it assembled onto the lower half of the robot.
Here we have the upper hip plate modeled and in place. We also have a rough model to simulate the battery size and placement. The battery was modeled to help visualize placement and clearance. I still need to come up with a mounting solution for the battery, this means that some of the parts modeled may change at some point.
