So I’ve started the great accumulation of STUFF to build the almighty LowRiderV2.
What a mission… I’ve decided to build a sound proof housing before all the parts arrive. This housing will be built directly under my kids cubby house. I know you’re probably already thinking, Woo… bad idea but hear me out… I live in a relatively small bedroom apartment. The original plan was ot have the LR2 in the kids room mounted to the top bunk bed (with sound proof housing in place ) so I feel at least moving it outdoors into the back yard is a better option.
The sound proof housing will be locked ( a child proof lock ) The lower level of the cubby house is 1.2m H with 1.7m length walls. The base will roll in and out for easy access.
I just spent the last two nights sourcing old carpet from a local housing renovation. They had loads of great off cuts that I can make use of for sound proofing. I’m not sure if I’ll use foam from a bed matress or polystyren foam as an insulator ?
A Makita 1/4 router arrived last week with a few bits and now I’m looking into purchasing a shop vacuum… but am not sure how much power is required to suck up the dust … any thoughts ?
I’ve printed all the parts as well … they turned out really nice 30% fill 0.2… @ 55speed. PLA+ on an Ender 3V2 I ahve it hooked up to a Raspberry Pi 4 and Octoprint. I’ll do the same with the LR2 for monitoring… I’ll also post a fire extinguiser close by.
I’m learning 360 Fusion at a rapid rate… assemblies , threaded nuts / bolts / and manufacture settings… Sure hope we get a Fusion 360 LowRider setup in coming weeks / months… please Ryan
I’ll post a pic. of the area under the cubby house I intend to use to help better clarify things.
