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’
Open ‘Package_file_Alias_withHistory_Dim.wire’ in Alias
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’
In Dynamo, you can set the main dimensions of a car for modeling reference within the Car parameters:
- 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.
- 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)
