The smallest forklift that I have built, features drive, steering, lifted and tilted fork. Including pro-building instructions.
The aim was to built the smallest forklift features all functions. A XL motor drives the front wheels with a 8/24 and 20t on differential. The use of new frame enable to have a strong building, without creaking sounds. The steering is operated by a M-motor, with a worm gear and clutch. I have chosen the single steering wheel in order to have a very small construction. Therefore, the frame measures 12cmx17cm. The tilting of the fork is operated by a M-motor with worm gear and a clutch. The fork is build on a variation of the fork of the 8416 set. Mine raises the fork at 24cm. I have tried to keep in mind to have a good design with yellow panels and I think I succeed, the forklift truck is small and very playable.
About the building instructions, I have drawn the forklift on SR3D builder, then I created the instructions with mlcad and Lpub4.0, the renderer is Ldglite. The result is a success, make building instructions become easier with SR3D and Lpub4.0, what encourage me to make more building instructions (as you can notice).
