  • Thin-Walled Structures Journal Paper

    You might have noticed that posts have been thin on the ground for the last few weeks. Along with completing the revisions for my PhD thesis (which is now submitted), I’ve also completed a journal paper that has also gone for submission. This will be the second journal paper that...

  • Seat Reclining Bar

    When I originally posted about the seat structure, I left the seat adjustment separate from the main seat structure design. I had the ideas about how to implement the adjuster, but it needed some time to let them mature into a practical design. The idea is to use the simplest...

  • add_rel_lightbox version 0.4.1

    Upgrade from your WordPress admin panel, or download from wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-rel-lightbox/ When I moved add-rel-lightbox across to using Simple DOM Parser in place of the regex controlled for version 0.4, I had a little problem with the pre-release code stripping line breaks from every post that, although it didn’t cause a...

  • Completed Laser Cut Brackets

    You might remember from the other week that I had designed and cut some perspex brackets as an mounting for a piece of art for an exhibition. The show is now up and open as one of the independent exhibitions that are part of the Liverpool Biennial. If you were...

  • Raspberry Pi Micro

    The Raspberry Pi has been heavily influenced by the legacy of the BBC Micro — right from being an educational computing platform, all the way to having a B version that has twice the memory of the A-version, plus networking! So the first thing I wanted to do when I...

  • Rear Hanger Shear Strap

    Using adhesive as the main joining method for the Atomic Duck requires careful design of the part interfaces. Where welding is equally as strong in all directions, adhesive performs well in compression and shear, but badly when there is tension across the joint. This is not a problem of the...

  • Have Laser: Will Cut

    I’ve been designing parts for the Atomic Duck to be manufacture by laser cutting, so I looked for a makerspace or friendly laser cutter in Liverpool. DoESLiverpool has a workshop with a laser cutter and a makerbot and co-working space, and I’ve been having great fun it their Makernights (two...

  • A001_P018_R001 Chain Cover

    As the chain has been rerouted for this design revision, and now goes through the cab and luggage area, that area needs to be covered. While this could be covered with 3 interlocking panels, I don’t want to leave sharp corners in the luggage area. Instead, a single piece that...

  • [Solved] — Incorrect Redirect on Comment Submission

    Edit: Thanks to WordPress Answers user peteroak the problem with the comments is now fixed. Turns out that I’d accidentally got an extra redirect statement in the .htaccess file for the blog that required the comment submission to come from this site’s url to prevent some automatically submitted spam. Unfortunately,...

  • A003_R002 Seat Design

    The seat structure seems to have taken the most time of all the assemblies to re-design, though it was interrupted by some thesis redrafts. It’s perhaps a measure of the amount of how much work was needed on the previous revision (A003_R001). A003_R002 Seat Assembly A003_R002 Seat Frame Seat Cover...
