Dougal;Looks nice and tidy. What's the intention?
Wish I had the same amount of room to play with. Mine is still a virtual build.
That software is Solidworks. It's 3D CAD used heavily in manufacturing and engineering.Dougal;
How do you do a virtual build like that. What is the software ? Is it like building block, just drag individual pieces to where you want them ? Can you scale the size for fitment ? I like it.
I like the hands on too, but this is great for planning things out and in complex jobs can save a whole lot of time.How do you do cad like that. I've always been better with hands on the steel.
Dougal; Thanks for the explanation. I can see how time consuming it could be to do an entire project. I dont want/need anything, just curious.That software is Solidworks. It's 3D CAD used heavily in manufacturing and engineering.
Every piece you see in that photo has been measured and drawn up by me. It's time consuming but I think it's worth it for planning such a tight install.
The individual parts are drawn up and mated into assemblies. Parts are locked into place using reference planes and geometric points (holes etc).
I'm drawing up the whole envelope of the engine and vehicle as needed. You can see the engine is fairly "blocky" right now and requires a lot more work.
Yes I can provide vews from any angle, including section views. Let me know what you want. Being a work in progress it'll improve over time.
