These that I am making are going to be around $500 a piece if I make 3 of them. That includes the genright weld on ring (which is custom), the filler, the roll over. All of which are weld on. The material has changed to 0.125 5052 h32 Aluminum.

The amount of design work to make a similar tank for one time would be about the same price. Just a sheet of AL is $310. I could make it, but you wont want to pay what I would charge you. Sorry. Just this simple tank design I have a few hours of modeling time. Id have at least 5-8hrs in ur tank which isnt cheap.

Find a new supplier, unless you like paying 30-40% more.

Thats just what the local ALRO quoted me for a single sheet. If you order in bulk the price drops and isnt so bad.

Spent alittle time in solidworks cleaning up my fuel cell. I added the baffles and the filler.



In addition to that I set up some global variables so if I need to make another cell with some other dimensions (Length,Width,Height) or a different angle on the filler All I have to do is change a number in an notepad text file and hit Control+B and it will rebuild the fuel cell for me to the new values.

So your designing these for what? Browns KOH rig?


Can you transfer from solid works to your table?

That is correct. All of this for the Ultra4 car. It will be for his first. Then when I build mine. Plus Ill have a library of parts for when future stuff comes along.

As long as your model them correctly yes they will transfer. You draw them as a sheet metal part. Then you can flatten the part out. Then you can export that as a dxf which will load into the cam software. Nice thing about modeling sheet metal stuff in cad is that it can automatically add the bend allowance in.
