Battery holder for RC car

Radio controlled vehicles again, but this time for a car.
The objective is to create a CNC-milled custom battery holder.

This is my first CNC project, and I used Galaad for the design

From paper to computer

No big trouble here, after reading the entertaining documentation, Galaad is very easy to use.


From Design to prototype

The prototype is made from soft plastic and cut in no time.


From prototype to final part

After a few minor changes, the final part is cut in a 2.5mm carbon plate.

Cutting the parts:


On the car


Many thanks to Felix for helping me with my first CNC cut and to Julien for advising on the CNC tools to use!
