Kicker Concept

kicker table

A rough concept for a group project - To build an amazing Table Football Set (Kicker, as it's also known). It's a fun game and would make a nice addition to the Fab Lab or could be donated to a local charity. All the cool kids are getting into Kicker, have a look at these fellows.

Assembly

On the surface this is an ambitious project but when you break it down, Kicker tables consist of a lot of really basic shapes.

Pitch

Flat piece of wood, probably the maximum size of the laser cutter should do it. We could do a vector engraving for the lines.

Walls x4

Rectangular with gaps for goals, poles. Bit more work here: building the wall joints and lining up the various cuts

Players x14

Cut a thicker piece of wood or 3D print on heavier material. Plenty of scope for funny characters.

Player poles x 6

The poles could be made of something as simple as a mop handle or a polished tree branch.

Handles x 6

Second-hand bike grips maybe

A round ball

None of your elongated ellipse balls here. Could be 3D printed on nice light material...

Legs x4

Sturdy enough to support the Kicker proceedings.
