Building A Quadruply-Curved Snowplow

Postby woodwardiocom » Mon Mar 23, 2015 9:38 am

Anyone got any suggestions one how to replicate the snowplow attachment seen on Katy of ?

For scale, the plow should be about 10 studs tall, though there's a lot of room to fudge.

The best I've got so far treats each half as flat, made out of plates, with the top and bottom edges being parallel, but it's not great.

Thanks!

I'd probably start with a whole bunch of 2×long plates and a pile of the , and see where that got me. The little 2×3 wing plates might help for the edge curves.

You might be in luck. TLG just released an official snowplow with a curved blade.



It's a far cry from what you're looking for, but seeing how they built the plow part gave me the kernel of an idea.

Smooth concave curves are difficult, but my initial recommendation would be to take a look at existing opaque windscreens like:



or



and see if you can layer them to build the shape that you want.

Alternatively, there are now a lot of smaller bows like:


or



or



you might use something like that to create the backbone of your curves, but the mounting to the body of the plow and the interconnection between plow halves would probably need some serious trial and error.

You might also be interested in the following two techniques:
