|Although it was completed a while ago, recent posts |
have prodded me into making an official announcement.
Check out this seven-foot-tall tower crane:
My aim was to create a functional model that would
fit in with the style of classic Technic models. Of course,
it would have to be sized to Technic scale. Three motors are
powered by an RCX, which is controlled with either a Mindstorms
remote or NQC code. Besides details such as railings, ladders,
and lights, I found room to add a motorized utility hoist.
I'm quite happy with the design of the trolley, hook, tower
section, and counterweight. After many attempts at creating
an angled truss for the main jib, I settled on a design
that looked the best rather than trying to imitate reality.
Comments appreciated. Thanks.
