    3D bicycle and frame design
    Hi,

    this is Carlos from Spain.

    My first post in this forum is to show you my 3D computer designs of frames and bicycles.

    First of all, sorry for my poor English, Im improving but I know that I have to study a lot.

    Now, Im going to tell you how I started using my computer to design bicycles.

    Since I was a child, I like drawing (dead people, cars, animals, landscapes...), then, I started my studies of engeneering and I learn how to use Autocad in 2D.

    As I like bicycles, I started learning 3D modelling in Autocad by my own, and these are my designs from those days:

    As you can see, they are not very real, but I was proud of them.

    The suspension frame is inspired in a hardtail frame: the Amaro Vitti.

    I was noticed that the Autocad was not the best program for bicycle designing but I had not to much time to learn how to use a new program and I continued with Autocad.

    My next project was a Hardtail 29er carbon frame:

    Well, I hope this post is not just to show my designs but that it becomes a corner where anyone who wants to put their drawings.

    I will continue posting my other designs.

    Greetings to all.

    Well,

    I know that my first works donnt look great, so I tried to improve using Autocad, and doing more detailed projects.

    The next projects were a long travel hardtail and a marathon frame (120 mm rear wheel travel).

    After those renders, I liked something better and I started doing some scenarios and playing with lights but still using Autocad 2010.

    You can see the difference between the two renders of the marathon frame.

    First of all, the materials become more realistic and if you watch closer, I had changed the rear triangle of the frame.

    I made a mistake with the measurements and I had to modify some parts, and I think that it looks better now.

    The next project was an enduro carbon frame using more complex surfaces in the tube set.

    It uses a similar suspension system than they use in the Cube Sting.

    And here, you can see some of my projects together.

    - Two fixed with the same frame but different decoration.
    - 29er carbon frame.
    - Titanium marathon frame (120 mm wheel travel).
    - Carbon enduro frame (150 mm wheel travel).

    Hi there

    Cool work and designs especially the Enduro Carbon suspension frame- I use AutoCAD for work and in my spare time I have tried to draw my Yeti 575 but gave up as I had too much difficulty tryin to get it to look realisitic.

    If it is not too difficult, I would be gratefull if you could answer the following:
    Q1. How did you do the curves and the changing tube profile on the top tube of the Carbon 29er ? (ie what commands etc)
    Q2. What shademode and colours (or renders/materials??) is you use for the Carbon 29er ?
    Q3. What computer and specs do you have.

    Cheers, and hope you can answer - and by the way, Yes, you spend too much time at your computer !!!

    Thank you. I know that Autocad is not the best program to do these designs but I previously knew the program and that was the reason.

    Now, the answers to your questions:

    A1. What I do is drawing the "path" as a single line (straight or curve) and the, I do the sections, for example, I can start with a circle and finish with a square, and then I use the "rulesurf" to generate the solid.
    A2. I cant help you because at this moment Im not using Autocad for 3D modelling and I dont remember everything.
    A3. Im using a HP g62 (intel i3, 4 Gb Ram...), but for my first designs I used an Acer with an AMD Athlon...

    If you need it I can review my Autocad files to tell you the setup of some projects.

    Greetings.

    The last project I did using Autocad was a fixie bicycle.

    In this project I worked slowly doing more details and I think that the result is good.

    After that, I started using a new program, but this is another story, hahaha.

    After this project, I had a problem with my computer and I had to stop my learning process for a few weeks until I bought a new computer.

    Due to my studies, I needed another laptop and I chose a 15,4 " LED screen HP, which is powerfull enough for me and not very expensive.

    When I started to install my programs, I thought that it could be nice if I could learn how to use a better 3d design program.

    And I got two of them: Solidworks and Rhinoceros.

    I needed Solidworks for my graduation project in The Netherlands, but I had no time to learn how to design a 3D bicycle frame with it so Rhinoceros is the solution: easier, similar to Autocad, good results...

    And I started doing my virtual machineshop.

    hey a program you might like to use is Inventor 2010. its made by autodesk (same people that make autocad) i think you might find it easier to work with. i've used alot of drafting programs. (i'm in school to be a draftsman) anything from AutoCAD 2D 2010, AutoCAD 3D 2010, Inventor 2010, 3ds Max, Revit Architecture 2010, Civil 3D 2010, AutoCAD Architecture 2010 and 2007or 08. and outta all those programs i think you'll like Inventor the most. i haven't taken solidworks yet but i'm taking it next semester. also a program you might like is Google Sketchup. its free from google and really easy to use. it also lets you bring AutoCAD drawings into it so it might be a quicker and easier way to make a showroom for your bikes.

    Hey, thank you for the message.

    I havent tried the Inventor, but I would like to do it, maybe next month or so I could install it and give it a try.

    For the moment, Im happy with Rhinoceros and I want to learn more about the Solid Works.

    Its quite simple, but you have to know how to do it.

    Its an helicoil with some thickness, and you only need to substract it from the hub.

    Well, at first, it was only for fun, because I like drawing and I like bikes, so I started doing frames with Autocad, but know, Im collaborating with a frame builder from my place to get some renders of the frames before welding them in order to show to the customers what they are paying for.

    I would like to design my own frame, and know, I have the chance to do it, but I have to pay this guy for it. The good thing is that I will get a good price.

    In this project, I started doing some components separately from the main project, so I can use them in other bicycles.

    For example, here you hace a stem and a rear hub (not finished).

    Nice work! I don't care if there's a point or not. The point is you're doing what you enjoy.

    If you set up the drawing, you could offer your service to builders. Customers go crazy over digital renderings, and builders can use the raw data for the construction...

    Thanks.

    You are right. I think that if a framebuilder can show to the customer the final product is a good point and maybe he can increase the sales.

    Lets see what happen.

    This is the state of the bicycle today. No more mistery.

    Well, Im going to explain this project.

    The idea came from a spanish guy in foromtb.com and I made it "real".

    It is based on the Surly Pugsley but with a different frame and the idea is to ride with the Rohloff, and if there is a problem with the hub, the wheels can be interchanged and the rider can use as a SS with the SS Chris King hub.

    I made the handlebar copying the Jeff Jones H-Bar and the saddle is a "present" from another guy in the foromtb.com.

    I had to make the wheels in that way because if I want to do a real one my computer is not able to render.

    My idea is to make front and rear racks, lights and fenders mounts.

    And the different between this and the pugsley is that the rear end has not offset because with these hubs and the 100 mm BB Shell I got a correct chain line.

    I hope you like it.

    Greetings.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    Just wanna share mine.

    I am too lazy to make the chain.

    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.

    Thanks for all this Charlie, it's really neat to see. I don't understand the computer in the same way that you do but I can see that its an amzing tool for someone with your imagination. I hope you continue to post.

    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.
