Rubberband Car Project

The Design Process

The design process generally included the following:

  • Initial research to obtain a general understanding of some of the issues involved in constructing a rubberband powered car.
  • Brainstorming and consideration of ideas.
  • Identifying customer constraints and requirements.
  • Testing rubberbands.
  • Preliminary drawings.
  • Spreadsheet calculations that give consideration to weight, size and forces involved.
  • Cutting out parts and constructing.
  • Testing the model against expectations.
  • Adjusting model as required.
  • Finishing.
  • Reporting.
  • Delivery.
  • Feedback from stakeholders and customer.

This site only covers details of the above to the extent that I thought people may be interested.
