    Hey, is someone in there?

    From tomorrow to thursday Im going to be quite busy, so you have time to suggest the paint scheme for the bicycle.

    Since its virtual, why not do something wild like a denim paint job. Shoot, you could do a dozen different paint schemes and not loose any investment. How about Burberry? Why not challenge yourself.

    Nice work. I've been using CAD for 15+ years, but am just ow trying to model a bike. I've started with the wheel. Working on how to copy the spokes around in the 3X interlocking pattern.
    I've used Cadkey, Solidworks, Pro-E and Autocad.
    I think Solidworks is the easiest for this type of stuff.
    Keep working at it.
    I think a Khaki paintjob with the chrome would look great!

    I'm just starting on Autocad. Your drawings are awesome! Hopefully I'll get the hang of it.

    The problem with the spokes is that you have to do 4 different pattern for each wheel, or at least 2, doing a mirror for the other side of the wheel. You need to do it twice, because the spokes are inner and outer if we talk about the hub flange. I dont know if you understood this, hahahaha, is quite difficult to explain in English.

    By the way, Im using Rhinoceros and is easier than Solidworks.

    Regards.

    What about the paint schemes used by Klien - the paint seemed to fade into different colours without an obvious transition - the best I have seen ?

    That might be difficult but I could try.

    Give me some time to prepare the paint scheme.

    This is an opportunity for someone who is going to paint his classic bicycle but is not sure of the result.

    But I think that maybe I could also chrome the SS and CS.

    What do you think?
    I don't know, but I love that ***** too.

    Nice work!

    Well, as I see, the second page of this thread is empty of photos or renders, so Im going to show how I would like to decorate the bicycle.
    You also can see the complete drivetrain and everything finished.

    I hope you like this as much as I do.

    Greetings from Delft, but soon from Spain.

    I think the colors look great. Is it just me or do the chainstays look too fat?

    The chainstays are exactly like it appear in the Columbus catalogue, so the size is real and commercial.

    Looks great! This kinda motivated me to play around with modeling a bike in Pro-E. Got a wheel/tire modeled so far. I'm doing a mountain bike though, and have tried a couple ways of adding knobbies to the tires... None of which have been satisfactory yet.

    This has been a real nice thread......so here's my "contribuition". My bike design method uses a different kind of "software"......I call it BAD (brain aided design), we all have it installed and can all relate. Notice how it starts as an idea and finishes with a ride, crazy how the finished product translates from the idea.

    Thanks for your contribution, Smokebikes and for sharing your BAD, hahaha; but since this thread is about 3D design it would be nice if we only post 3D computer designs or tips about this topic. I hope you dont missunderstand my words.

    Your design, is it a 04er? Haha. Nice job.

    Excellent job Charlichin. Check out http://grabcad.com/library, you might find some useful bicycle related models like that if you search for "bicycle":

    Go upload your models as well I'm hosting all my bike related stuff there....

    Thanks for the link and sorry for dissapearing. Im at home during Christmas and my parents have not internet.

    If the full suspension frame is yours, congrats, nice job.

    Merry Christmas for everybody.

    Wow. Impressive renderings! I'm a Solidworks guy myself. Love the fat tire / rohloff design! I tried to reverse engineer/model my hardtail a long time ago....
    Right now I'm workin' on simple stuff, like QR seatpost clamps.

    This project started out as I was exploring a chromo mini-DH frame, 7" X 7". The guy I am collaborating with has been working with carbon fiber for years. He brought in a colleague with vast carbon fiber experience. The next thing I know, well here's proto #3.

    This will be refined. Pivot placement is pretty dialed for my style. 2.5 : 1 leverage. Chain growth about .75".

    Will be constructing a chromo frame with same pivot/linkage specs. FEA on proto #1 got the wheels spinning to use an aluminum rear as a way to minimize weight and material and maximize strength. Throw in a few beers and straight clean steel tubing front triangle turned into sweeping CF.

    We'll see how this turns out. I only have a few hours experience with SolidWorks, and it shows. No offense to all of you real CAD designers. If you could see my pencil and paper original sketch of a straight forward steel triangle frame next to this model you would probably say, as I do, "How did you get this from that?" Happy New Year everyone!

    The suspension of your bike sucks if it's different than mine. Really. It sucks. Big time.

    Mac User-Needs Drawing Prog Recommendations

    I'm a very experienced mac guy, with a good graphics background. Haven't done it in years though.

    Did the whole Illustrator, Quark, Photoshop thing for layout and ads. Some drawing, photo retouching, and a little bit of my own stuff with Adobe Dimensions 3.0 for line art.

    I'm wanting to design a off road vehicle for riding on with a kiteboard and am wondering if you can suggest some apps that I could use to do this?

    Now, I don't want to have reinvent the wheel. I like the looks of what you guys have done, and I envison this for more than just a pretty picture, such as using AutoCad to actually produce the project. I have no idea what I'm talking about...

    Anyway, Google Sketch, AutoCad, other? Learning curve?

    Have at'er!

    Thanks,

    SweetDoug

    Nice projects the MiniDH and the folding chainless bike.

    And for you, SweetDoug, I think that the easiest program for 3D modelling is Rhinoceros and you get very good looking renders, but Autocad is more professional for industrial design and not so difficult than Solidworks, which is the best program for the Industry.

    Im working in a new project but for the moment its only in my mind and in a few paper sketches.

    And Im also thinking in doing again my earlier designs and getting better results.

    No Mac Rhinos

    Just checked and it's still a better for the Mac. I'll probably try sketchup or cad.

    Hi to everybody.

    These days, I was working in my new 3D design project, and it is almost finished, but until the "client" gives me the OK, I cannot show it to you.

    Its going to be my first 3D modelling to reality.

    You are welcome, hahaha.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    I dont know how you understand your computer, but for me, in this case is like a paper and pen 2.0.

    It allows me to get some nice pictures of what I have in my brain and Im very happy with the results.

    Im finishing a 3D modelling assignment, but as you can see, Im starting new frames, and thinking in new crazy ideas.

    Regards.

    Following advide from a guy in foromtb.com, I have modified the TT and lowered the light intensity.

    I hope you like it.
