Strengthen frame to keep square to spec
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We need to define the spec and then do a drop test afterwards.

Mike R's drop test is recommended.

We were able to deflect the frame 1mm over 355.6mm with a force of 770N or 173.1lbf and 5mm over 355.6mm with a force of 1000N or 224lbf

Adding to west's comment, this was tested on a standard TAZ 6

@nickp the current design is planned to move forward with both the traditional corner brackets, as well as the 90 degree internal corner brackets. The traditional brackets are being left on more-so for cosmetic purposes, but the frame is definitely going to be much stronger than taz6. We could test a quiver frame to see the actual force required to shift the frame out of square, but i think we run the risk of actually bending the extrusions. Do you think we need to set up a test to measure the force for quiver, or is knowing it will take more than Taz 6 enough?
