RC Car Solidworks Model

In 2010, I studied a unit at UWA called MECH2401 - Engineering Design and Visual Communication. We competed in a challenge that required us to design and build a system to transport a payload across a track using two vehicles.

Our team based one of our vehicles on an off the shelf remote control car. During the semester I caught the flu, so I kept busy by disassembling the car, measuring every component with calipers and modelling it in Solidworks. The result is the following CAD model:

All the parts except standard fasteners were drawn and rendered by hand - no downloaded content was used. We did terribly in the competition (our car drove off the ravine in the first few seconds), but we got good marks for our presentation.
