I'm just gonna put this here. If its the wrong place then perhaps the appropriate person can sauce it elsewhere.
I've been working with CAD systems for a few years now; mainly AutoCAD but last year I got my grimy hands onto Solidworks, which for those who don't know is a 3D modelling software. Recently I picked up a 3D printer to actually make my creations off the computer (its an Ender 3 for those who are interested, your average beginner printer). This year in school I have a big project for my manufacturing class where we have to design and make something and produce it through a 3D printer. Its a year-long project meant to be worked on in our spare time and due in April. One of my buddies is making a V6 engine, the other is making a wind turbine, so naturally the obvious choice for me was to make a radio-controlled Euro-spec cabover tractor with a crane on the back, something like what Palfinger produces (though the crane will be very, very DIY. I'm talking high school science class medical syringes DIY). I'm just sharing my work for those who may be interested.
Right now I'm focused on finishing off the chassis. I'll post a few photos of what I've done so far, and some test creations.
Its an 8x2 chassis with the last axle being a self steered tag axle (for those who are aware of my passive steered axle fetish). Currently what you'll see in the chassis model photo is a basic chassis and 2 basic suspension subframes with spring arms attached. The spring arms will hold the rear diff casings. Alot of this stuff is very basic, simple design mostly because its out of plastic, and also as April comes closer and closer I'm just trying to get this done. Hoping to have a full chassis setup be late Jan early Feb.
Provided this gets finished in time, I'd like to start putting a bus together, probably something small like a Vicinity 30ft.
Let me know what you think!
