Gypsy Reference
« on: July 20, 2018, 04:07:05 PM »
Has anyone made any isometric drawings (or taken any photos with scale indicators) of the elusive car seat?
I cant seem to find anything.  I'm at the point where i think i'm going to model up the seat in 3D and fabricate it.

If anyone has a seat lying about, could you be enticed into taking dead-on photos of top, left, right, bottom, and top?

That link doesn't seem to be for the GM/Century Infant Love Seat. It would be nice if there was a design on thingiverse.com. Hell, if someone had a seat sitting around I'd be more than happy to whip getting it scanned and posted.

I'll expand on this a touch...
to anyone who has built a gypsy using the elusive car seat, could I potentially offer you monetary compensation for taking dead-on photos of top, left, right, and bottom (with scale indicators)?

I can try and dig my Gypsy out of storage soon and take some photos
I think there might be a potato cake in here.

I would be very grateful!
thank you!

On a side note, STORAGE!?
Why isn't she mounted to the center of your dining room table!?

my gypsy is literally sitting outside of my room. Though mine was improvised.
Try not to get sucked into the vortex of hell Billy!

Haha, she takes up quite a bit of space and I just didn't have the room to keep her out. Will be fixing that soon, though :)

Don't know if this helps for scale, but the Henry Ford Museum has one in their archive, and it says that the dimensions are:
Height: 18.25 in
Width: 15.25 in
Length: 21 in

Where are you (taorama) located?  I have a seat I could bring to you to be scanned, in exchange for the privilege of watching the process, provided the trip wasn't too long.  I could also have it done in my area (Cleveland) if pointed to a scanner of appropriate size.  CWRU Maker Space?  Library?

i'd foot the bill if necessary.
Say the word and I'll start sourcing the labor.

I need to get my Gypsy off the shelf and finish up work on her anyway. I'll see what I can do to get some good measurements and pictures sometime later this week.

I will also look into getting her scanned locally. I know of a few maker spaces that might be able to help.
Uh ... I'm gonna go clean his room, too.

GREAT!
my end-goal was to create an accurate 3d model that could be uploaded to thingiverse so everyone would have access to it.
...the only obstacle has been finding the &?$#!@$ seat.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on TWO at the same time back in the days of the Yahoo! Group. I already sold my extra, sorry.

I've discovered a place that specializes in 3D scanning and reverse engineering here in town. I'm going to get some pictures of my Gypsy head tonight and I'll contact them to see what the cost would be to scan and release the files.
