    Blueprints for engines

    Does anyone have any idea where to find line drawings of modern engines. In particular the Cadillac Northstar, or a nice 3d dxf file would suffice too!

    Re: Blueprints for engines

    I am looking for the same thing, but for a Porsche 914 engine. Absolutely no luck. I will keep my eyes open for a northstar while continuing my search.

    Are you looking for a, DXF, DWG, IGES, STEP? Do you prefer any of these file types?

    engine blueprints are very rare, and the ones you do find will be fairly useless since it's usually exotic engines.
    the only ones i got a ferrari and a couple other exotics.

    Thanks Auto. I guess it's the digital camera and do it by hand.

    What I am really looking for is a 3D model. Do you think I would have a better chance at finding something in this format?

    Hi hurra,

    Blueprints is kinda a misnomer when applied to what we are talking about. The term blueprints here either means quality photos or line drawings from which a 3d model can be made. Most people in business that have the actuall dxf, iges, stl or other files will have a problem releasing them, at least for free. I am also now in need of a file for the Audi and Renalult transaxles. Same purpose.

    If they were quality models, I would gladly pay. I have not however, been able to find a place/person that even has offered these services for a fee. If I were to make quality computer models, do you think there would be a market for them. I already have to tools to do just so, I am just not willing to invest the time if it will not pay off.

    Hurra,

    Automx is probably the best person to ask that question to. I have limited experience with Rhino 3d and am trying to do a simple 3d so we can get on with the exact chassis design, but that now brings up the transaxle thing and I need it too. As far as the for fee thing it would all depend on price for me. I don't have to have mine exact so that would limit the price i could or would give. On the other hand if you get them done in the next week please let me know! ;D

    Mike
