Welcome to the forum
Hi fabrun

welcome to the forum :)

That is a nice bit of cad work :cool:

I admire folk who have the savy to use cad software .......I have plenty available but it confuses the hell out me :confused: :o

Well done

It's missing the engine bay brace;) :rolleyes:

Seriously, nice bit of CAD work. I only really do 2D. Have used Inventor a few time, very powerful.

Never used Solidworks

would you be willing to share the solid works files on the forum as i would quite like them to play with.

thanks for all

Is solid works the one that allows you to set the materials and then you can do strain/stress/shear tests etc?

yes solidworks can do this but never try it before

as i live in france, it's left hand drive

i'll finish it and i will share, no problem

3d cad is not very difficult (because solidworks is very powerful and have nearly no limit), what impress me it's that all of you do in your real life with a real construction

Nice bit of work, i have also done most of my car in Solidworks, its an excellent program...
In regards to the stress stuff, pretty much all software does it but its an Addon that you need to pay for.. So personally never seen it on solidworks....
Nice Job

Last time I got realy serious with CAD was 14 years ago with Autocad on HP Apollo workstations.. :)

cosmosworks (fea analysis in solidworks) is included in the premium pack( mine) but i've never use it. maybe one day

fabrun 16th December 2009 05:28 PM

i must admit that building this car in real would be fantastic
i made a quick search and no sierra available but i can find a bmw
with the help of some friend, maybe i can succeed

does someone still put, with success, bmw part (engine, diff,etc..) in this chassis ?
