We Have CAD

As I mentioned in my last post, I planned to create a CAD model of the VTR1000 to then modify and get an overall view of what I want the bike to look like. ¬†Well, after a bit of digging around online, I was able to track down and purchase a CAD model that someone else has already done, saving me a lot of time and effort. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but it certainly looks the part visually, and will be ideal for these early stages of setting out the design and packaging of various parts.

Here’s a few pics of the original VTR1000 CAD model that I rendered up using SolidThinking:

And here’s a few more where I’ve just turned some parts off and played around with the positioning of other parts such as the headlight, windscreen, seat and exhausts:

This is going to make life a lot easier and really help me narrow down what I want this thing to look like. Let me know what you think…

Cheers, Brett.
