Redback Spyder
An Australian Supercar



I found this in GrabCAD a few years ago and was amazed that someone would post it. It was originally done in IronCAD.

I am probably like many of you that think of 3D CAD more as a hobby or play than a job. I thought I would post this and see if any would like to design a new body or utilize some of the components. I will give it a try.

If you take on this challenge please send me a rendering so I can post it.

I have uploaded it as an Parasolid and an IronCAD native file to my Onshape.com account. If you do not have an account it is free.

You can then download it in a variety of formats! But realize that you will probably need a robust direct edit or hybrid modeler to do the modifications since they are all "dumb" models. Or you could even load it back into Onshape and play. You could also download IronCAD or ZW3D, import, and play there. ZW3D with its flexible freeform Class A surfacing would be the best to design a new body!


You can also download these Super Cars from the GrabCAD Contest. I loaded them up on Onshape.

You can see an example of how to reuse CAD models for new products here:

Reusing 3D CAD Models for a New Product

If you need an easy to use cost effective professional hybrid or integrated history/direct edit 3D CAD system to work with the model take a look here, ZW3D starts at $1,300.00 perpetual or annual rental of $350.00 (Yes, that is per year) and IronCAD Inovate at $1,270.00
