    Apr 20, 2010, 12:34 PM - BTTF2 hoverboard plans and graphics #1

    Does anyone have the vector graphics I'd seen mentioned on this forum for the Mattel hoverboard for BTTF2? They all seem to be old broken links. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Also if you have any really good tutorials that are online, I'd appreciate the links! PM me or post below.

    Thanks!

    anyone got measurements and specs of the board size, magnet diameter etc... the thread on JackDoud's page to the RPF forum was removed. Any technical specs would be greatly appreciated!!

    I'd love measurements on this as well. I really need to get off the pot on this one.

    although I think the green stripe is more neon looking in the film, but make the board your own and go with what makes you happy

    Hope these help!

    Unheard...I did my magnets out of plastic. When I get home I'll post pics of them. I am still working on the clamps.

    I'd like youse guys input on this idea.

    So for the stripes, I have this crazy notion that IF this were a REAL thing, it would be built like a skateboard. The basics of skateboards hasn't changed since I was riding in the mid eighties. A deck, decals and grip tape.

    My thought is to do the stripes out of grip tape. I know that isn't what was used in the movie, but it just seems to make sense.

    Any thoughts?

    Do you guys think that using an actual skate-board as a starting point would be a good idea, or is there a better way to go?

    A skateboard wouldn't work, its the wrong size. That being said....I'm going to make a skateboard version for me too !

    Here is what I have. Most of the pieces are from an old GA kit. I really want to build one from scratch.

    The magnet and clasp are CNC'd out of plastic, and the top of the magnet has a brush aluminum top, which to me looks much cooler than painted silver.

    I can probably have those parts made if anyone wants some.

    I was going to do the clamp as vac form pieces, which I still want to do, but I need better measurements for the clamps.

    Anyhow.....pics

    There will be a kit for sale, and make sure to get on the list for the holographic tape for the hoverboard in the junkyard right now. I need at least 20 people for that.

    I am using clay to make them on a smaller basis now because it is my first time modeling. But there are some images I created on file at

    www.area84.com/PDFFiles.zip

    Also on a larger not there are some plastic plates you can get at any supermarket that are a good size for the beveled magnet part. I cast it with plaster of paris then was planning on working on the rest of the underside.

    I had my magnets and spacer machined on a CNC router. I'm trying to find out prices now if he'd do more.

    I'd imagine a router is the only way to go other than taking a pie pan, pouring something into it and molding it.

    As far as printing onto the board, what others have done is take the images, print stickers and use that.

    If someone had measurements for the board I'd probably start right on this, but I don't want to until we get proper measurements.

    It can be....but I wouldn't do it that way. I'd make each element separately.
