Dynamo Automotive Package data file

Hi everyone,

Here’s an example Automotive Package data file created in Alias and Dynamo.
Link: ‘Package_file_Alias_withHistory_Dim.wire’ & ‘Script 4 - Forward-rearward angles.dyn’

  1. Open ‘Package_file_Alias_withHistory_Dim.wire’ in Alias

  2. Query Edit any Dynamo surface/curve with history to launch Dynamo and navigate to the saved script file location: ‘Script 4 - Forward-rearward angles.dyn’

  3. In Dynamo, you can set the main dimensions of a car for modeling reference within the Car parameters:

    - Length
    - Height
    - Width
    - Front overhang
    - Rear overhang

    • set Tire size by using the Tire parameters: Width, Aspect ratio % and Rim diameter

    • set Tire placement by using the Wheels parameters:
      Wheel base, Wheel track, Wheel position X and Wheel position Z

    • Forward and Rearward angles for clearance

In addition - we have added visual dimensions that bake over for some of the main dimensions.

Note

  • need to download DynamoText package from the Package manager (Packages > Search for Packages)
  • the dimensions in Alias and Dynamo are in mm (set by Alias)

Let us know if you have any feedback or comments on these files.

Thanks,
Vivian
