    What program did you use to make those? The texture on the rings and the lighting are waay more bling than what I could find with Solid Works. Very cool. :)

    Get software legally? Hmmmm....:whistle:


    No worries dude, I don't need ya to make anything for me. I have some diff ring .dxf files I got from the offroadfabnet download section. They don't 100% fit my needs, and even me in my n00b status can tell that some of them are kind messy. So it's good practice for me to clean them up and modify them to what I need. :)

    Solids is the way to go, way faster, easier and shows you more about the part. Here a Unigraphics traction bar assembly I did last week during lunch.

    SolidWorks has an add-on called PhotoWorks that will do the fancy texture-shadows thing.

    I have it here at work and use it on occasion.:D

    Joe, if you need any help with Solidworks just ask. I have been using it professionally since 1997.:D

    Hmmm, I think the front suspension could use some stiffening up a bit... :D You can see it sort of leaning over at the end of the bounce...
