Re: Cad files for the S2 Toyota Chassis ?

My experience with software, is that cheaper versions limit capabilities that have nothing to do with the operator... Get full functionality from the start.

SolidWorks seems to be the second best 3D modelling software but easier, more intuitive to learn than CATIA.

Re: Cad files for the S2 Toyota Chassis ?

Also, having worked for Lotus (3D CAD on the V6 Exige, so having access to the native 3D CAD data), the information is hugely confidential and the property of Lotus. You will not find anyone who will give you the 3D CAD, unless they reverse engineer if from an actual car. There are loads of compani...

Re: Cad files for the S2 Toyota Chassis ?

What engineering school teaches "reverse engineering"? If you want to say copying someone else's designs, say so. If you mean taking apart something to find out how it works (because you are not smart enough to do original work) and think you can improve on it, then say so. Everything tought in engi...
