Cool Welcome to the forum

Hi fabrun

welcome to the forum

That is a nice bit of cad work

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

Well done

It's missing the engine bay brace

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

Never used Solidworks

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

Fabrice,
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
Ed

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 ?
