HELP - Modelling a Pushchair in SolidWorks
Raz posted a topic in SolidWorksHi CADTutor. I am new to this forum. I need some help on a project i'm currently trying to do and I have no idea where to begin. I am hoping some kind soul out there will show me the way.. I am fairly new to Solidworks but not a complete newbie. The main commands I know is the Extrude, Cut, Shell and other features. The bits I struggle on is the Sweeps, Reference gemometry, mates, and other stuff.. THe project i am working on is trying to make a pushchair/baby stroller in Solidworks. I have images of what I want to model, have the main measurements i need, i just to make it in Solidworks, Assemble and then test using the Simulation software... But i have no clue where to begin Someone please help! Images of the stroller push chair i want to model are at the end of the thread post. A breakdown of what I want to do: 1) I want to make the frame of the stroller + the wheels. With this assembled, I will be able to do an initial Displacement Test and check my Factor of Safety. 2) I want to make the seat and the Sunhood of the stroller. This will be added to the main assembly. 3) I want to make my Stroller have the ability fold, and the seat to be reclined backwards as shown in two of the images. Stroller's website: http://philandteds.com/products/push/smart By the way, I don't want to make the model using surfaces etc. THe main tool i need to make the frame and stuff is the Sweep. I am using Solidworks 2011 version. Thanks for reading, I appreciate any help that can be offered, Raz.
