This is a model of
walk-in water tank, an exciting and innovative
piece of mining equipment. The model is designed
to be exhibited at trade shows and
presentations. It's features include removable
top, full interior, walk-in stairway and working
stairway doors. All tall railings on the water
tank's roof are folding down. This model is
considered highly functional, as whatever
elements articulate on the subject, they
articulate on the model as well.
Like all our models this one was developed
digitally in 3D (Solidworks). The model was
fabricated out of styrene and acrylic, with
selected pats and components being rapid
prototyped, including direct metal deposit.
In order to transport the model we designed
three sets of transit cases - one for short
range ground transportation in heavy duty ATA
transit case and two for air transportation (in
brief and full configuration) in smaller and
lighter luggage type transit cases.
