Thanks for sharing the motor bracket pictures. I am amazed at the things that can be done on that software as well...I think I might just have to take that class....

Here's a pic or two of my WK project. Homemade brazed aluminum frame and roll-cage

thats definatly a cool build!

i woudl say take the course. i'm a firm beleiver in education....my typing my not reflect that...hahaha.

i type faster then i can think and i dont' care to correct it after.

solidworks is a VERY versitile program i use it for just abotu everything.


FYI i'm cuttign the first prototype chassis otu of 1/8" Delrin right now. can't wait to hold it in my hands.

I can't wait to see you holding it in your hands...I am excited for you. I milled out a bumper in lab yesterday that should have been cut 3 weeks ago. I was all smiles though after I turned it over and over a hundred times in my hand to get a look at all the pretty angles. There's a few more touches to ad to it next lab but I can post a pic later.

The class is SurfCam, I hope it translates as well for me as SolidWorks does for you.

In layman's terms, what is the process to model an axle like you did? Punch measurements in with coordinates? I am blown away! I might have to track myself down some software to start messing with.

Post those pics ASAP!!! lol

Solid works works of of sketches.

You make a 2 d sketch then you have extruding tools. To either extrude a solid, or cut away form a solid. Then you can get into sweeps. Where you sketch gets extruded to follow a path of another sketch. Or revolve. Were it extrudes around an axis to make a round object.

Then fillets and chamfers.

That is the most basic of basic explanation. You can do SOOOOO much more but I’m not explaining it. Once you get the CAD concept its fast and easy.

If you look at the Axial comp chassis that are this widt it has 3/4 of the motor hanging out of it to one side. This is a true 2”.

The reason for the WK tranny was for the width. I will be making this with arms and axle mounts to use the WK axles as well for a buddy.

If it works it is a great upgrade for all the guys thinking about switching to a Axial.

Keep following the thread……input is appreciated.

Also, I have a chance to take a surf cam class this summer. That a good one to take before CNC machine operation or after? I can't decide how far i want to go with my schooling but "All the way" would be the ultimate. I dream about making all my own parts with a CNC rig.

Later!

Did you get this idea from Don at DNA or??? I like the looks of your chassis a bit more than his but I can see the resemblance. I Just started drawing up a scale chassis for my WK that will work with the lower motor mount(trying my hand at emachineshop). I have a Helicopter main gear mounted to my Tranny at the moment(140T I think) but I will have to get rid of that if I want to build up a scale interior, it's totally in the way! Would be a killer low-speed crawler with it I think... That or move the tranny way forward to clear everything.

Get home already so we can see this thing finished.
