Hello =)

Hi everyone! Its been a while since the last time Ive been here...

Well, the teachers of my university where on strike, so I traveled a little bit (So Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais), visited my brother and went to the beach.

Now Im back, and so are the classes.

One of the projects I had to do this week was to design a car wheel, and thats what I wanted to share with you.

100% my design, its a 17" x 7,5" wheel. I used the program SolidWorks to do it, if anyone has the program and wants the solid part file, send me a PM! :wink:

Hope you like it!

Cheers!

That's awesome. I thought I'd recognised the style. Not just the wheel but the fact that you have to use Solid Works. I've been learning some basic stuff about SW myself for my Human Technology classes. Very cool program !!! Do you have to do the stresstests with that COSMOS thingy as well? That must be my favorite part of the program. The fact that you can test any part till it breaks before you even have a real part is just bloody great.

And again... great work on the wheel

Thanks, guys, Im glad you liked it!

Mario, take a look at the other topic Ive created here in the drivers lounge and see some of the pictures of the trip, youll enjoy it! They tell were Ive been!!

Basosz, I didnt learn how to use COSMOS yet, but I will in a while. As I said, the teachers were on strike, so were having now the classes we were supposed to have in October. If you want to test the wheel, please do it! Im very curious to know how much stress it can stand!! SolidWorks is amazing, Im having too much fun using this program!!

Awesome, man. We are learning SolidWorks now, after a long time with AutoCad. I have to say that it's a nice program, but it's taken me a while to get the hang of.

Same here. It's not the easiest of programs to use. But once you get the hang of it, it's pretty cool.

I've never used AutoCad so I can't really compare the two. Is AC easier to use than SW ?

I dont think AutoCad is easier than SolidWorks, specially for 3D drawings!!
