Lately we’ve been working on the design of our wooden roller coaster. From the velocity calculations, to the layout and banking, the wooden roller coaster is coming together.
To create the ride we chose to calculate a profile that’s based on horizontal distances represented in the ride layout. When you cross the vertical profile by the horizontal layout you get a three dimensional (3D) spacial curve.
The velocities, accelerations, and forces are determined primarily from the vertical profile numbers. Once the vertical numbers are determined, they can be projected along the horizontal layout. The results of projecting vertical calculations across the horizontal layout is banking and batter (support) values.

We will also be presenting at the Atlanta Maker Faire this October 3rd and 4th in downtown Decatur, Georgia. Hope to see you guys there.
