Custom Racing Wooden Roller Coaster Progress Page


Recommended Posts

Hey all. We are working on a HUGE model for a customer. He has allowed us to show you our progress, and a little view into how we do things at CoasterDynamix. Keep posted for more updates as we work through it!

 

Step 1: The prototype. We have designed the ride in Solidworks, and now we have to build a prototype to see if it works! Usually our coasters don't just work on the first try. We tweak things here in there. No need to paint the prototype or use proper colors, so it comes out quite festive!

I've got another update today! We cut out more on the laser and glued it all up. We then laid down some track to make sure the train made it perfectly over the hills. Good news is it did!

 

 

 

 

More to come tomorrow!

Finished the prototype today! We set our efficiency at 80% between hills and it worked perfectly on the first try! How's that for great engineering?

 

 

And a video (sorry about the music, our warehouse is loud)

Now that we are happy with the prototype, it's time to build the final model.

Step 1) Laser cut a TON of bents. This takes days to do!

 

 

Then we paint them all and start building.

 

 

Hope to have more for you all tomorrow!

Hey all. We installed the coaster at the customer's house a few weeks ago! Thought you might like a look at it

 

 

And a video

 

Right Here!

 

We are also taking one of the models to a conference for Science Centers. Maybe you'll have a big roller coaster model at your local Science Center!
