I just wanted to let you guys know that I am glad to see you added the cad file to the forum. As most of you know I sold Velocity and have been traveling all over the country with other business but I have many usefull solidworks files I will be willing to upload when I get a chance. Uniballs, Heims,Hubs,gordon wheels, tires,rotors,shocks,4"bypasses and many more. I have also had some experience with using Scaled 3d studio files and bringing them into solidworks for layouts of cages and many other things. I will try to help out beginers the best I can in my spare time. I am experienced with autocad and solidworks.

Nice to hear Jason. You can send them to my email when you get a chance.

I am still setting up the file format to download from and looking into the legalities of sharing these types of files; the last thing I want is these companies breathing down my neck.

Are you asking for user experience/feedback or a pirated copy of that software application?

I perfer Solidworks for ease of use I also use Inventor and it is a good program and with the use of iges or other file types we will be able to share drawings with you. I spoke with Ryan about Drawings and he is not yet ready to take on a bunch of drawing. I will start uploading soon. And when Ryan is ready they will be public. I also recommend that we upload files in their original format for the Cad program used and a standard file "iges, sat,dxf" for other users, with a different program. I know that’s how Turbo squid and other file sharing communities do it.

I agree with the dxf and igs file types.

I have a few files I drew up the other day I'd be willing to share. Just some oddball heim spacers if anyone needs some made.

Cool. Could you upload them to the CAD Library?

If you just want to model 3D rollcages, the best software program is also the easiest to use. Check out this article I wrote about Bend-Tech Pro. It's nowhere near as powerful as a software application like SolidWorks; it's a dedicated tube bending and notching tool. But it will allow you to create 3D tubular structures and then it can translate your design into bend and notch angles (taking all those measurements in a program like SolidWorks is a lot more tedious). Bend-Tech is actually working on a plug-in for Solidworks right now though that will give CAD users the best of both worlds.
