Wynn Kageyama presented 3D Printing Bike Parts
FFBC GENERAL MEETING MINUTES, March 12, 2019
Fremont Adult Education School, Room N6, 4700 Calaveras Ave, Fremont, CA 94538
Wynn pointed out that some bicycles are fitted with Tidy Cat or Costco laundry soap plastic buckets and they are held in place by bungee cords, duct tape, etc. Wynn noticed this and decided to design a pannier rack system for buckets.
A few of his objectives were: It must look professional, be repairable, be reliable, and be weak enough so it won’t damage the bike if it gets sheared off.
He used free online product design software OnShape and designed a bracket for Costco laundry buckets and Tidy Cat buckets.
He used mastercar.com for a library of parts. He used Alameda County Library in Union City to print on a 3D printer.
Chris suggested using thingaverse, for a library of items and to find bike parts.
The presentation was well received by the members.
Meeting adjourned 9:00 p.m.
