Plastic toy car Design & Manufacturing
4th - Fans votes of POTY 2014 Edition
From idea to reality. This phrase can easily resume the objective of this project, in which we were asked to design a toy car -in our case, Fiat 500 1963- primarily made of plastic. Afterwards, I decided to study the detailed manufacturing of the movable doors. At this point, I designed the injection mold of the doors using standard parts from HASCO, in order to get a realistic solution.
Finally, I used DMU kinematics for the manufacturing simulation, gathering all the elements of the project. This is an example of the Computer Aided Design-Manufacturing integration so important nowadays, and of course, it can be applied on toy industry. Some of our classmates chose Rolls Royce models, De Lorean, Mustang and even a Cinderella carriage! Who said engineering is not a kids game?
