Re: CAD drawing. Help me please!

"Greatest thread lift of all times" :-)
I'm looking for a decent model of the body, does anybody know which ones that actually are any good? I just emailed projectdiablo hoping to buy the model only.

Just to make it clear, I am able to make the model myself but i'd rather pay for it since it takes a awfull lot of time to make a decent surface model in solidworks... Call it lazy :-)

Re: CAD drawing. Help me please!

To give an update; project diablo never replied to my email...

Anyways I found a model somewhere. It is a solidworks surface model, obviously some imported stuff which have been modified. After some minor scaling and deleting features with rebuild errors (only surface features to close up gaps in invisble areas like the flange for the hood etc it seems to be quite legit to some basic dimensions I found in a thread here. I think it is the same model that a russian user has posted pictures from, since the solidworks model language is originally in russian.

If someone would like the model please send me a pm with your email adress.

Re: CAD drawing. Help me please!

Scanning a die cast model or part was mentioned earlier in this thread. I have a white light scanner I use for reverse engineering. I would be willing to help.

How can one be sure that the diecast model is accurate to the original? They tend to look a bit funny...
