Horn Massive


Horn Massive

Design and construction

The core design of Horn massive is that it is the largest horn which can be transported by a conventional truck. The design process took six months, most of that time spent calculating the steel cutting specifications needed for fabrication. Horn massive was designed using the software tools AutoCAD, Bass Box Pro, Rhino 3D, 3D studio Max and Horn Calc.

Horn massive was built at Visual Arts fabrication machine shop at the University of California, San Diego. Fabrication time from cutting the first steel plate to final assembly was 14 months. The construction of Horn massive required an extensive set of tools and machinery. The major part of the construction time was spent on fabrication, Mig welding and machining all of the components. Horn massive was built with help from the Scripps marine science development shop in La Jolla, California.

The elements of Horn massive, primarily comprised of mild steel, include the horn, frame, chassis/platform and lifting rig. All fittings are made 6061 Aluminium. Horn massive cost approximately $8,000 in materials and components.
