Take the Hot Glue Gun and squeeze some glue into each of the joints.

Wait a minute or two until the hot glue cools down and hardens before flipping the Elevator to the floor.

You will risk it Gluing and Ripping the foamcore after you trace the pattern with your pencil if you are too impatiant ;p

Use a pencil and trace all the way around the Elevator Base.

Once you have your shape, you need to add the Wall Thickness before you cut...

April 03, 2005

Take a piece of scrap Foamcore and align it with your traced line.

Then trace a line with your pencil on the OTHER side of the Foamcore scrap.

You now have the exact thickness of the Elevator wall.

April 03, 2005

Repeat this technique for all sides and then you are ready to cut.

WARNING...

Make sure to CUT ON THE INSIDE LINE !!!!

If you cut the original Outside Line, your Elevator Box will simply fall through. We DON'T want THAT :)

Now grab some Scrap Foamcore pieces. The Width doesn't matter it's only for the floor support.

As long as the height is 15cm you are fine.

April 03, 2005

Hot Glue the 2 pieces into a T shape and let it cool down.
