I designed this motorized boat awhile back on Tinkercad.


Step 1: Supplies I Used

Step 2: Tools I Used

Step 3: Design

I designed this boat in Tinkercad. I started my design by lining up 3 cylinders. Added wedge to help it cut through the water. I designed a case for the motor and the inserted into the boat. I made a spinner by inserting a rotated rectangle into a cylinder flipping it then adding a hole to put it onto the motor. I uploaded a AA battery holder from thingiverse http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:331394. I cut off the screw holes so that it would fit well in the boat.

Step 4: Assembling

  1. Insert motor
  2. bring wires out the hole
  3. Insert cover
  4. Put sealer around cover
  5. Screw in cover
  6. put o ring onto motor
  7. Put spinner onto motor
  8. add contacts to battery holder
  9. Insert battery holder
  10. Connect wires to battery holder
  11. insert battery
