As I’ve talked about before, one of the classes I’m in is the manufacturing course, ME 240. We’ve been making a lot of process with the car project. I think I talked about my project before, but in case I didn’t, the two 8th graders I’m working with wanted a Spongebob car. You can see my 3D model below. We’ve made a few changes since I saved the picture below, but it’s pretty much the same idea. We 3D model the car using SolidWorks, then we create a mold and then we create a tool path to create this mold. Once the mold is made, we will be injection molding the cars. Injection molding is basically shooting really hot plastic into a mold to create a part. So after we have our plastic model, we will be gluing Hot Wheels car wheels onto the car. If you’d like to see more about the other cars and more about the project you can go to:
There are a lot of cool car projects to check out.
