Robocoaster CAD Model
I created a Kuka robo coaster model in CATIA. I used the car from my cantilevered roller coaster simulations to save time. The track is created using three sketches with laws (one overhead, one side profile, and one for banking). I made this in about a day so please excuse the lack of detail. The purpose was more to show proof of concept that this was possible to create with CATIA.
The next step I decided to try was adding a rotating dome to the model on which a video could be projected similar to the Harry Potter attraction. After that, I put the robotic arm onto the lower chasis of my cantilevered coaster model and simulated it going around the track.
This could be the closest you’ll come to seeing a CAD model recreation of the Harry Potter ride. Although I have yet to experience the Wizarding World for myself, I think the main differences between my model and Universal’s is there’s contains 47 robotic arms and is at a constant speed rate where my base speed is variable.
