Ha, interesting ! So how many Design/Draughting Engineers do we have in the club? I've been in various Senior Mech Engineer/Engineering Manager roles for 30 years or so, now trying to eke out a living freelance with my trusty seat of SolidWorks...

Will, please tell me to mind my own business, but I'm always impressed by the equipment you have access to, I guess a few of us have a hobby lathe etc. tucked away in the shed, but big CNC stuff, CMM, is this your business or do you just have a bigger toybox than most of us ? ;)

Yup, been draughting / design engineering since 1980. Using Solidworks full time for the last 14+ years but first used it in 98 and before that first used Autocad in 89. Before that was the good old drawing board!

Wow Guys I didn't know we had so many solid works CAD skills in the building! :read2:

If anyone is free to and willing to donate some time we are really lacking in the :help: CAD :help: department ! :thumbright:

Regarding access to equipment, I'm very very lucky to have some great people on board supporting this project with access to some amazing big boys' toys. :boomboom:

Next up we took our scale model and covered this in fluorescence tuffs for wind tunnel testing.

We built a special base plate that allows us to rotate the model to simulate cross wind affects.

We then placed this model in front of a giant fan and left the room.

Cameras rolling we switched on the 100mph wind !


We are still looking at the data but it gives a very good visual aid to areas that need our focus

So do you want to send the air up/over the rider ? I assume you dont want to encase the rider in any way; although frankly its pretty much a missile anyway !
If you send it up-n-over creating a little vacuum for the rider how do you get it to reattach behind ? What a fun little problem (speaking as someone with zero knowledge of these things).

Keep us posted !
