SCISSOR SUSPENSION CONCEPT (2018):
Range of motion was one of the most important factors for suspension design in this competition. This design works with a scissor-lift mechanism to achieve a meter of travel.
We were unable to manufacture this model due to resource constraints, however I designed all parts so that they could have been machined and fully built and I am confident that it could function very successfully in the competition.
The last picture is a render of a 3d-printable test model for this scissor suspension.
