Car Design Software

Recommended Posts

dooleygav

I dont know if i put this in the right section here, (There are so Many!!)

 

 

Is there any free software packages out there that you can design cars on?... like body and wheels and stuff?...

 

It doesnt have to be CAD based....

 

I just think it would be a cool thing to have and use.

 

 

Thanks in advance!

i dont know of anything free but Unigraphics NX6(most current) is designed for the auto and ship building industry.

 

The surface modeling package with UGS is very good. It also has things built to help with car design. It is not an easy package to use but it can do everything from bodies, to interiors, making molds to form fenders etc.

 

here is a screen shot with a few of the auto specific tool bars open.

 

What are you trying to do exactly?

what are you looking to do? do you just want "skin" representations of concepts or are you trying to actually model a car?

Regarding Alias Studio and Rhino:

 

Is there any free software packages out there ...............!

 

Rhino costs approx 900 Euros?

You have a free demo version that lets you save 25(?) times.

I think Rhino is the best choise, low cost and easy to use.

Yeah, I see that he wanted free, hence my edit.

If he is a student he can get the student version of Rhino pretty cheap.
