F1 Williams FW31 project

Post by Petar-Vertex » Wed Mar 23, 2016 12:14 pm

Hi everyone, I am new on the forum (never really like to visit them) but as I am formula 1 fan I had to register here to learn everything I can about f1 cars.

I am also a CAD designer so when I have free time I like to model my own projects and these days I found some time to start the Williams from 2009 so I le be posting updates on it.

I am also making tutorials and the front wing tutorial is already uploaded on youtube, of course you re gonna have to use CAD software in order to design it. My projects are more like trying to model the car and replicate the shapes, not really having time to get into the technical stuff and aerodynamic as I am having job and have work to do.

LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS WDYT OF IT... :D

Here is the link of Youtube videos and I hope I can post some images here of my design.

An excellent example of surface modeling with Solidworks.

If you can link a .stl I'm sure some other members would be happy to run it through cfd just for fun.

Well to be honest that s not so easy but as I am young designer I think this is time to be brave and start working on it, just hope it s not gonna take too much time. Thanks!

Ok, so the STL is what people can actually use, thanks for reminding me I le upload it ASAP. So it will be in a same link with other files.
Rear wing is what is coming very soon.

Yes i know, i gave it a try once but i couldn't find a good surface modeling technique, and i'm not a big fan of T-splines :D

hahah I heard about T-splines from rhino and it seems they are actually good for surfacing, solidworks I use is also damn heard but it s interesting to learn and develop :D
