KR1 Cad models

Post by moltenmaniac » Sun May 04, 2008 9:22 am

If anyone wants cad models (solidworks 2007) let me know.
Im currenly making them for the design of an EV. Not all parts will be exactly right but the frame has been measured to mm accuracy. It wont have have an engine/radiator etc. Ill post some cad jpgs once im done anyway

would you happen to have a CAD drawing of the swingarm and suspension assembly in 2D in DWG or DXF format?

ive done the swingarm and suspension, but i cant go straight from a solidworks assembly to DWG format. I can publish it to an edrawings file easy enough so you could look at it, but i doubt that would help much as you cant get measurements or modify an eDrawing file. I can save it as other file types such as Iges Step Parasolid .u3d, so maybe you can convert from one of those?

primarily, i wanted a CAD drawing of the suspension assembly so that i could examine the relationship between the wheel movement and spring compression. i dont have all the dimenaions and relative positions of all the pivot points though. would you at least be able to supplly me with these dimnsions?
i do have swift 3D though and i am able to import 3DS models though if that helps

i believe a DXF viewer is avaliable free from the internet which allows you to read autocad files

If you can do IGES I can translate it into 3ds DWG or DXF

Solid works is good - I know someone with access to that.

yeh, i think having both solidworks and IGES available for download is a good idea, as solidworks will allow other people to edit/update my work, and iges is supposed to be the format which all programs can read now. shouldt be too much more to go now, hoping to have fairings redone today, yesterdays attempt doesnt really do it justice!

Hi There.
I would be most interested in any KR Cad that you have,as i am getting my head round Solidworks 2007,so if you could supply files in Solidworks format i can load them and use rollback to get the idea of design intent and how certain things are done.

Thanks in advance

yeh will do, although you probly wont learn much from the fairings and bodywork as im not an expert on surfaced parts. The fairings had so many features, both good and redundant that i ended up converting them to parasolids and importing so it could load them properly, but they look good and are almost the same as what theyre sposed to be.

Thats what ive got so far, probably wont do any more for a while so if anyone wants it now let me know and ill set up a torrent file for it. As its around 60meg for the solidworks, and another 90 for the IGES.

That's some very nice work youve done there. =D> =D>
That must've taken you ages to do. :shock:

When you say youre doing them for an "EV", I assume you mean an electric vehicle. :-s
Sounds very interesting. What sort of battery and motor are you planning to use? I'd love to hear a for more details on how you plan to set it up.

Cheers, Scott.
