My hair brained idea

I'm currently getting an associates degree in drafting from UVU. This means I'm basically learning 2D and 3D CAD. It's interesting and I definitely enjoy working on it. But I find I'm not really using it much outside of class. Not really a great way to practice. So my idea is this...

Anybody who wants something modeled so they could see an accurate representation of what it would look like, or to take it somewhere to be cut or otherwise made, post up a rough sketch, dimensions, etc. anything I would need in order to design it. If I can, I'll make it and send you a copy of the file to look at. Not looking for money, or to start a business here. But if someone expects me to do something and comes up with an idea for me, I'll be motivated to do the work! So if anybody has an idea post it up!

We'll see if this works.

Exactly like a JK overhead CB mount! If you give me your rough dimensions ( Even a hand drawn sketch of what you hope it would look like would be nice) then I could start building it. That sounds like a perfect project to get my feet wet. At least you didn't tell me you wanted a 14 Bolt, with truss, modeled to spec.

Perfect. Now that my semester of school is over this is probably a really good time to get started.

Who else has an idea?! I could do a bumper, I could work on an idea you have for rock sliders, light brackets, small interior mods, anything really. The only thing I'm a little leery of would be trying to design a roll cage. I would think I would need to go and make quite a few measurements to get that put together. Anyway, post up!

What format will these be made in?

Id really like a rear bumper drawn up for my WJ, ideally similar to the one from protofab
http://www.protofab4x4.com/products.php?ID=00&ID2=30

I just dont have the dimensions, just the pictures on their site

If I get to it over the holidays it'll be an Autodesk Inventor file. So I could save it as any file type supported through Inventor. I'd have to look tonight. Is there a specific file type you would request, if possible? If I can gain access to a buddie's WJ I might could take a few quick measurements. Or, if you take a few that would work too. Overall length, height, width, mounting hole rough locations, etc. The small stuff honestly. I could make that work I think. This is an educational exercise after all so I'm willing to fish around in the dark a bit to make something turn out.

He needs it in .dwg

Can you 2D all the trailer panels in this thread? http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f104/...-build-909088/

That would be fantastic

Edit: Actually just noticed that he posted the Solidworks file on google share. Can you convert those to .dwg?

Haha well .dwg outta be easy to get to.

Considering he posted all of the files it should be easy to convert from 3D to 2D. It'll take me getting to a computer with Solidworks on it though, so plan on a few weeks before I can get started.

Waiting for rough dimensions to get started on the CB mount for the JK, and basic bumper dimensions for the WJ bumper. Any other requests??
