IGES is an obvious choice. It will be nice if there are more formats as well. necessary space can grow in a hurry, but it's not a huge ordeal.

You brought up a good point of a naming convention. Maybe we can go for something along these lines:

MY-Model-Part-creator

So your Alternator would be 03-WRX-Alternator-bishop333.iges

More comments could be added in the notes sections of the properties for a part.

Obviously general shapes are acceptable. When someone comes up with a more detailed part, we'll replace it.

I'll have to come up with some webspace. I have an ENOVIA server, but I have a feeling that's a little much for most people.

I think .01" for tolerance is more than enough. I'm also not interested in trying to model accurate internals.

I'm out of town for the next few days, but I'll try to get something a bit more formal going at the end of the weekend.

Also remember, once you submit this, it will be public domain. Don't submit something that you've designed and then be disappointed when someone else decides to make it and make money on it.

For now, if you want me to host a file, send it to [email protected]

Heads LH/RH - S.A.C.

this will be cool if this gets working.

I'm currently at school for engineering so i hope i can possibly contribute. i do have access to mastercam 9.1 and X3 along with vericut 6.2 so if anybody needs some G-code created or checked then let me know.

catia is awesome. i've only seen boeing use it though... ($$$!!!!!!!)

solid works is what i use.

Just found this thread.

It would definately be awesome to have a 3D model of the EJ. I work for a design and engineering ccompany here in Michigan. I have access to Catia V5, UG NX 3-5, Solidworks, and other programs. I've been trying to compile a bunch of dimensions in order to start a basic model in my spare time, but I've been way to busy lately. I've got 4 projects going on and haven't been able to put much time into this. I may be abble to contribute, but I don't know how much.

A collegue of mine is a transport industry designer using UG NX5. He has a model which he has used to develop his Mini Project (complete subbie running gear into an original Mini.). I'll see if he has anything to contribute.

if skc finds something that would be killer. Otherwise when I get back on Sunday I'll put together a list of parts and people can take a couple and then submit them when they're done.

Well this sounds great!!

as for the tolerance of 0.01", that should be plenty as many of the parts being taken are cast parts and any of this machining is done with "slop holes" for misalignment (notice play with intake manifold bolt holes, alternator/ac bracket, etc...

Okay, I'm back. I started a Google Group. This would allow people to upload files. Unfortunately it has a 100MB limit. I'm not sure if there's an option for more space, or if more people joining means more space.

I'm still exploring more options for housing models.

And now for a list. I wish this forum had a WIKI post option. I'm going to edit the first post and put user names next to the parts that people are committed to modeling. If you have more to add, just post and I'll add it to the list.

Wouldn't it be awesome if I had an engine in there somewhere. Maybe I'll get some time soon

I've got access to a lazer scanner as well as a Romer CMM arm (similar to Faro). If you can supply parts I can scan them and give you the point cloud data. I can also use the Romer arm to capture planes and bores acurately...

I work up at the Everett Boeing plant.

Send me a PM if you are still interested in working on this project...

I do most of my CAD/CAM work in Mastercam, but I can also use Catia and Solidworks...

This thread makes me happy in the pants. There's a CNC Mill I have access to via my school's FSAE team, and I've had a few small things in mind that I'd like to try making, so a CAD engine model would help me immensely. Here's hoping something comes of this.

Definitely interested in this. I have messed around with solidworks and such a bit, but I'm definitely not good enough to model parts like that. This will be awesome when it's all put together

I'll let people know what happens. I haven't heard back from the guy here at Boeing yet. The illustrator picture is nice, but useless unfortunately...

having trouble finding time we can both get down to the laser scanner.

I did get a decent scan of the head lights and tail lights at home. I'll get some new renders up tomorrow. Maybe this friday we'll get down there.

Had to start from scratch. Didn't like some of the measurements. Still not happy with CATIA's internal renderer. Might have to try something else.

Looking good holmes.

What width are the tires modeled at? Looks like it could use another inch maybe for the pics to balance it out...

We need to go scan some more engine parts...
