So after more than a month of pushing around verts and sliding edges to get the perfect measurements, I have this to show for it:
|Complete with clamps and everything!|
The main reason that I decided to do this is because I was curious about investment casting, and how cool it would be if I could design my own crowns and lugs and such and get them cast for framebuilding. So, this will be my test.
|A rather exciting side view.|
There are a lot of factors that need to be tested with this crown - like, hey, will the fork blades fit? Could it be drilled for brakes? And so on. I imagine this will be the first of many, many iterations to get everything just so. The nice thing about working in 3D is that it's easy to measure things down to the tenth of a millimeter, and things can automatically stay symmetrical as you're working on them.
|Nope. No brake holes.|
