'Get Radical' Razor PowerWing Scooter Design Challenge

Medium

Create a new scooter design for Razor USA.

Solid Edge by Siemens PLM Software is sponsoring the first-ever PowerWing Scooter Design Challenge with Luxion, makers of KeyShot, and popular scooter maker, Razor USA. They want you to Think Radical - use your knowledge, skill and creativity to create the coolest and most awesome three-wheel, side-to-side, body-powered scooter ever.

Design for efficient production and low cost

Primary structural material is low carbon steel tubing (round, rectangular or any easily reformed shape). Injection molded parts can be used for the wings, covers, etc. Best reference is the existing product, which can be seen on the Razor website: Razor PowerWing.

• The front wheel size could be anything from a BMX wheel (20-inch pneumatic) to a scooter wheel (125mm PU with nylon core).
• The angle and size of the rear casters need to be more or less the same as the existing product 67mm wheel (PU w/nylon core) and 18 degree caster incline angle (from vertical).
• The width of the rear casters should be at least 55 cm
• The handlebar and grips are standard bicycle diameter (22.2mm). The current design is a T style, but a Y style or
other design could be considered.
• The brake is a patented cable-actuated friction brake built into the front fork.
• The steering must incorporate a free-rotating bicycle-type headset (cup and cone) bearing. Bushings for steering are not acceptable for this class product.
• Folding is a plus, but not a requirement.

Note: Structurally, scooters are static load tested to the recommended weight limit x 3 (5 min no deformation) and impact tested the max load rating, centered on the “deck” (3 drops on each wheel no deformation). Ref ASTM 2264-09

    Hi Pratik. Part of goal for the sponsors is to get more people exposed to Solid Edge and Keyshot. Also, the Razor is designed in Solid Edge. Both of these tools are pretty easy to use so you shouldn't have too much trouble ramping up.

    So you know, I'm not involved in this contest but I do work for Siemens PLM. GrabCAD has some Solid Edge Tutorials here that might help if you decide to do the contest:

    Hi Seghier, sorry about your problem. I did some checking and because CAD software is highly technical, there are a number of export requirements placed on us that vary according to the country. You seem to be caught up in this and we are looking to see what we can do. I would have thought you would have gotten an email saying there was a problem so I will check on that too.

    I would love to be part of this project ... but I have to say. ..... Having a program for only 45 days is never enough to do good design and engineering work. I have been working on SolidWorks and Inventor for years and still do not know them completely. I know that getting the basics is no real problem but getting to design a great project like this will need more than just the basics. Also I believe the engineers on GrabCad have day jobs so it becomes even harder to have to learn a new program. I am not in any way saying that one program is better than the other but if you are working on one, it is then the one that is best for you at that time. So ... it would seem to me that this is not a challenge for the best design but a promotion of software.

    One important thing to know is that there is very strong integration between Solid Edge and KeyShot. You can download the plugin and read more about it here: http://keyshot.com/solid-edge

    With the LiveLinking you can continue the design in Solid Edge and send changes to KeyShot without affecting the work you've already done, saving you a lot of time in that regard.v

    ouch, 17 days left and only 4 entries.....If I may... I can't speak for everyone, but I think my sentiments might be echoed by others. The problem for me with this comp is that I really want to learn the software, but learning a new software is sort of a big deal, even if you've used other CAD software, I consider myself intermediate advanced with SW and It's like hitting a wall using solid edge, NOT because it's not a good software, just because the small nuances like, interface, processes etc. etc are different enough to throw me off. You'd probably have to run this challenge for a few months to get some substantial results. Just my thoughts....what does everyone think?

    @Sara....ofcourse, that's a great idea, I should be ok, I usually just self teach from the internet but It's just that I know how tedious software can be, like pull your hair out kind thing, so I think that's just scaring me off. I need to fire up the software, sit down and commit to it......harder said than done. Again, SE seems pretty cool from playing around with it for 5 mins but it's just those first few days before things start to click that are the hardest. But for sure, worst case I'll post up a sketch and yell HELP!!!!!!! ).

    yes you can add color to model no matter is it part or assem, I think it is always in VIEW toolbar, in part it is part painter and in assem is format faces.
    I cant check none of this cause I was got system crash and now I am without SE software, so I am not sure is it ass I said. I hope I helped you. :)

    so in it you got 5-10 options, there you can rotate plane, make plane normal to line etc.
    you will definetly find what you looking for :)

    Great competition, really like keyshot, just a shame about Solidedge. I've used solidworks for many years and the transition is near enough impossible. In my humble opinon Solidedge could benefit a lot from the workflow of Solidworks particularly with respect to dimensioning, re-editing sketches, mates in assemblies and the basic intuitive function of the left mouse click. I'm still trying but I will have less hair afterwards...Good luck everyone!

    Anybody wanting a render artist to handle their design with this project give me a message. If we win, then KS licence is all I want. Keyshot is very fast and gives excellent results, but you will need more than 4 days to get the best from it !

    thanks Sara,

    I'm in line with the picks. My only small caveat is that sami.kallamaki-1 has two entries in the final, more power to him but I just think that the two designs are so closely related that perhaps one should be chosen of the two, which would give a chance for someone else to make it in. I would keep "razor electric" by Sami and in place of the razor Hex I would vote for the following in order of preference:

    Taros:
    New Power Wing Scooter

    Lazlos:
    RAZOR R&L

    Garids:
    Razor Scooter- Blade

    what does everyone think?

    I really like:

    Razor Super Wing L

    and

    Razor PowerWing

    both match as a tie for my number one design choices

    ...

    I'm looking past the names, and focusing on first impressions & presentation, design, & description. They're really all pretty darn cool designs (everyone's!!), and its always difficult to pick the few..

    Best of luck to all the finalist entries ;)

    I am very happy to see the finalists, but i have one concern.

    My design:
    Razor PowerWing

    For some reason it is described as having a PLYWOOD board ?
    This is not right, please have another look at my entry. I have clearly stated that the board is injection moulded.

    Overall i like the finalists and i think we have some very good designs here.

    for sure bro, we worked hard on this one. Couldn't have done it without you. I like Razor electric too, and Kristo's! The more I look at our model, the more I want to ride it! I think it would be sick setup if we could keep the weight down. Also, the next logical step is a small electric motor on the front wheel, the battery pack could go just under downtube, not so much for a trick scooter but more for transportation, have a few different variations ). Hopefully Razor's listening to this. HAHAHA.

    Congrats to all finalist!
    Thank you for involving me to the list, I'm glad that you enjoy my a little bit freaky idea :)
    It will be grate to have Razor Electric by Sami Kallamäki Razor Electric! I think that led lighting could give a lot of fun. Cool idea for parents, who wants to find their kid playing in the evening by just taking a look at the yard.

    This was my first Grabcad competition and I'am really happy to see my design
    in final, even my other version was kicked out, but no hard feelings.
    It's fair game to have one model/person in final.

    These three are my favourites:

    Razor PowerWing
    Razor-Ivo-V3
    RAZORSCOOTER: GLIDE MASTER

    Good luck to everyonv

    I agree with IVO 100% - they jury has not done a good job.
    I like the winning design, but im sorry to say, that it is not (by far) the most simple to manufacture. I belive we need some explanations straight from they jury.
    I do not want to be bitter about the results, but we need to look at the big picture here.
    Grabcad will not grow in popularity if good designers work is overlooked and the results are "questionable" to say the least.

    Thanks again to GrabCad, the sponsors and the community for providing these opportunities and for all the support ))). I have to admit, I'm suprised, but glad we came out on top, our design was a little on the higher end of the budget so I wasn't quite sure if it would be a little too much for what was asked for. Again, wouldn't have been possible without my team mate Petar Trlajic so a big shout out to him also.

    @Razor, I really think this would be a hot product for the more extreme croud out there, the small razor scooters have become a huge trend now in the skate parks etc. I think with some simplifications to bring the weight down, our design could be the next cool thing out there. Petar and I are here if ever you plan to pursue aspects of our design, we'd love to be involved in anyway.

    thanks again everyone!

    Congrats to all participants and finalists!

    IVO,

    Although I never really condon deleting comments, a few of your comments were a little uncalled for, not all, just a few. Take some time to reflect and let a cooler head prevail. Don't give up, don't quit, and above all, remember to have fun with it, we all want to see your designs and for you to be apart of this experience.

    If it were up to me, Kristo would have placed higher on the list, he had a strong design that met the criteria and good presentation also. But hey, c'est la vie.

    Remember, sometimes the rules are meant to be broken.....:P
    Caio Bella!
