Further Developments 2

As we progress through, we were very fortunate to have found our sponsor from RollForming Services Ltd (RFS).  They have kindly provided us with free steel as this would inevitably resolve alot of previous problems we have encountered while using timber, e.g weight and strength of final model. we have become more aware of the exact measurements and ways of achieving our idea of the twist, as you can see in the picture below, this is what our installation will look like from the back view.

further development of the final model

To prevent lycra from tearing due to loads, we have decided to use a combination of large metal and rubber washers to hold the lycra in place as pressure points.

We have planned all our bits and pieces for RFS to cut, and hopefully it should arrive soon for us to assemble everything!


We'll need approximately 13m X 3m space at shed 12.
