Still trying to get my head round creating things with solidworks, I can read and create drawings the old fashioned way no problems but this puta way is mind blowing....I can see many a lost day just sat pressing keys just hope I can do what I want with it:cool:

Hats off to those who know how to make cad work creating models and drawings etc...I'm still at the confused stage:rolleyes:

Hats off to those who can create so beautiful seat!

Last news:
The build has started!
I ask some help to a technician school
Students are happy to work on such project
They are on holydays now, so more news next month!

Cheers and I'm hoping to use solidworks to sort out my next daft invention:D

I've not tried a Haynes chassis in Google Sketchup, but I've done enough stuff with it now to know that it would certainly be possible.


The advantage of Sketchup is that it is free, BTW :)

Solidworks is the bees knees you change materials etc so draw summat up and faff about making it look like anything from wood to carbon fibre....just wish I could remember what buttons to press and why o why do they use puta nerdy speak for engineering terms it's confusing my stupid old brain:o

You can do the same thing with Sketchup, and can even paste your own photos onto stuff.

Or you can take a picture of a building, then use an add on program to calculate where the picture was taken from, and actually draw the building from that, no need to enter the dimensions.

There's a lot more Sketchup models out that you can download than there are for Solidworks, I daresay Solidwiorks is ultimately better but usually it is very expensive too, so the user base is much smaller.

The difference is that Solidworks edits models (like a CAD), whereas Sketchups works with meshes.
