My Display Stand for a Scooter- The Transformer----DKD Project 1>>>

The basic molecular structure of  "TheTransformer" scooter stand is made up entirely 85% of Structural  Aluminum and 15% other materials,the structure consists of FIVE different types of aluminum-Brushed Aluminum-Blue powder coated perforated aluminum panels-Polished Structural aluminum-Anodized aluminum mesh-High strength Brown anodized aluminum tubing. The design was inspired by the movie Transformers which speaks about the transformation from one form to another based entirely on the mechanical movements and rotation of mechanical gears and pre-programmed electric motors.

The scooter stand Blue powder coated perforated paneled wings rotate on a hydraulic mechanical moving motor located at the top of each wing to allow the extended wing to rotate in-ward to 90 degree angles.The floor is made up of High strength Brown anodized aluminum tubing which is hinged on a 80 diameter structural aluminum  hollow core tubing,which houses the hydraulic mechanical moving motor located within the tube..this allows for the mechanical floor to rotate in-ward at 90 degrees .Each floor is fitted with a circular mechanical moving floor with 6 steel protruding arms inside the floors core,this allows the floor to spin on its own axes and rotates the scooter a full 360 degrees for maximum visual continuity all round. When the roof and floor folds in its 3m in width and length allowing it to be hooked up to a trailer and the scooter stand can be transported to another location where it can be display the scooters and advertise a certain  scooter brand .  

  I am currently in the process of making a video of the mechanical moving roof and floor on 3dmax and will soon be uploaded to show you why this structure is called THE TRANSFORMER :)

  1. I like the concept, would also like to see the different stages of the transformation.
