No. but all my stuff is hand built and since this was put up i wanted to see what the cost ranges were just for duplication. And also curious about improved design cost have run people. I dont figure anyone will say prices except those that have had work done. Wonder what the cost differences between a scanner and and pin point arm cost. Since it really is about the time to copy the part.You looking for a quote? I don’t have a 3d scanner but I do have experience designing sheet metal assemblies for lowers, uppers, spindles, links and the fixturing needed for manufacturing.
It all depends on the guy picking points out of the scan. If it's anything like the tards we have in our CAD dept, your better off using calipers and punching the numbers in. A-arms are just as fast to draw up as to try and convert from a scan. Whole chassis? Might be worth a scan, maybe........ Still going to require a lot of clean up and making everything match side to side.Wonder what the cost differences between a scanner and and pin point arm cost.
You are 100% right. That is me right now. I suppose I can dedicate more personal time to this endeavor although now I'll have to pay out of pocket for the simulation program.I think some of the college suspension classes get into this but by the time the students start to grasp the good ideas they graduate and move on. Few, then have the resources t crunch the numbers.
I use a machine shop here in Tucson that seems to be very reasonable $$ wise and has 3D printing and possibly 3D scanning capabilities. PM me and I’ll send u their details.Curious what some of the going rates are to scan, copy existing parts for those that have pre cad or hand made parts? Lowers, uppers, knuckles, lower links?
