I am a passionate person, and I have been really wanting to start posting. I have been holding back because I was no sure if I wanted to dive into the play ball pit. I do frequent the forums, and I am quite well aware of the rules, and how people are on the forums. Let's just say I know many of you, and you may not know me yet.
Without further ado, I want to show you what my current project is. I am a 3D Modeler, and lately I have felt the need to express my AB feelings by making a crib to adult scale. I do not have access to a traditional drop side crib. So I do not know if I am constructing it faith fully in 3D. The color are stand ins, and the pictures are not indicative of a final product. Some parts may not be made yet. I do not take requests, and I mean well when I ask for help with this. Thank you!
My areas concern is the mechanism for the drop gate, and the steel bed railing. How things are attached, etc.
1. How does it catch once it is brought up to click in place? What does that piece look like?
2. The steel bed railing, how is it attached to the 4 crib post? Does it look much different from a regular steel bed rail minus the legs? (where the plywood goes into for the mattress support)
3. Any comments, questions are welcome, and constructive critique as well.
