3d Prototyping

All developed in SolidWorks, 3d models were created to speed along product development. The most complex being the aluminum frame design that was an assembly of a main frame, engine / peg mount, and subframe. A coordinate measurement machine was used to determine engine case mounting points.

Top Middle and Right:The 3d rendering allowed for stress testing and weight reduction prior to any machining; saving the company thousands of dollars in physical prototypes. Many, many measurements had to be specificed in the model, from the internal diameter of the integrated head tube to the mounting points of the engine. Although the subframe changed in the final production version, resembling more of a ladder frame design instead of tubing, the end result is truly unique as the chassis doesn't include a single weld.
