This is another forum I am apart of as it relates to the career I am pursuing.

This guy is creating an E30 from scratch in a CAD program and it absolutley flawless.

I bet the designers of BMW in the late 70's early 80's wish they had they guy on there staff.

Its a long thread but go through it and view all the different pix theis designer posts up of the E30 he is working on and the detail that he puts into it.

Its flawless.

Above is the E30 Cad rendering, not a physical E30. He is that good!

Its not that hard. Depending on the Cad you use. I prefer solidworks but the easiest would be the Google Cad tool! All you need is a litle time to practice!*th-up*

Solidworks is horrible at surfacing. I tried to create an E30 with solidowrks and nearly had an anxiety attack. Alias and 3d studio max are the best to use for auto design.

I agree but...from an engineering point of view alongside Catia its the best tool.
Graphic wise maybe not as good and it takes a while to get use to it. But when it comes to FEA and all sorts of analysis it is far better!
And thats without mentioning value for money! Cause then it outweighs all!

i wouldnt mind using that to see what a project looks like before building it.

have you guys heard of plant space? I had a job last summer doing 3d models in plant space and it seemed like a real good program.

That's what they use in automotive photography now, I gotta start kidnapping some CAD designers to keep my business running. :D

thats amazingg. solidworks is too limited. i prefer NX4. never tried catia tho

Well Solidworks has a more engineering approch. I dont think its limited though. Just need the right sister tools with it.
Here is something i did on Solidworks! The machine is actually fully operational and you can add kinematics or do any FEA or thermal analysis on it!
Have made a car on it but cant seem to find the file. If i do i ll post it
As for Catia it is like Solidworks but has even more potential yet it is more complicated to use! Best tool for Aerospace though IMO!
