Le Mans LMP1

Contest Closed
I want someone to design a Le Mans Prototype, and I prefer the Toyota Hybrid TS030. This is a personal project to build it as a hobby. I want to build the body out of fiber glass by making (milling) molds with a CNC router machine using a 3D software. I am a fabricator, so it will be easier and preferable for me to build (weld) the chassis out of aluminum or steel, whichever you think will be more recommended for building a chassis.
As I mentioned before, I would like to weld the chassis; however, I want the transaxle transmission to be part of the chassis. I want pushrod suspension, front and back, and the rear pushrod suspension can be either bolted on to the trasaxle transmission or to the chassis, if chassis is design all the way to the back. About the engine, I want a small block V8. Last, interior with seat.
Don't Wants:
I don't need all the electrical components, nor interior details of the engine and the transmission. All I want is detail of chassis, suspension with bolts, body, and door to know measurements when I am building while using AutoCAD.
Ask for Sample:
I would like to see sample to see which one will be closer to what I am asking for and to know if some adjustments have to be made.
  1. Autodesk, AutoCAD

Hello, I just want to share to you. One of the prototype i created in solidworks, I created that car a year ago. I can create you another one based on the design that you prefer.

I'm the design engineer behind the Aeromaster LMP replica kit car. I found this topic accidentally and just wanted to contribute with some more clear information about the work involved, as well as the kind of things these projects require.

First, let me clarify that the chassis I designed (whose strength you put into question) is amongst the strongest and safest examples compared to the usual kit cars you see on the market. In the case of a frontal crash or small overlap crash (i.e. 25% of the car's frontal area) my chassis is safer than the aforementioned chassis of SLC. The latter suffers from bad protection around the front end (too large areas of easy-to-bend aluminum sheets with scarce amount of tubes), especially around the drive's feet, which may lead to severe injures should an accident occur.

With regards to price of such project, the real numbers are usually multiple times higher than the suggested sum, and mainly depend on the amount of time spent and work done by the CAD designer/engineer, as well as the license you want to acquire (whether you want to buy the complete right over the project, or you prefer to keep the cost down and allow the designer to be able to re-sell it to other parties to spread out the effort of his work, etc.). Also, in case that you want the designer to do engineering work that involves use of actual parts (such like engine, transmission, brakes, suspension parts, steering mechanism and other mechanical stuff), you have to provide either the real copies of those components or very accurate 3d scans, so that they will be used as a reference for the chassis and suspension CAD design you aim to get.

Hello everyone,

I never thought I was going to reply to this website when I saw how angry people get. First of all, it was never my intention to disrespect any of you guys, and if I did, Kerrigan, I really apologize. Second, about the price, I was trying to put a higher price, but somehow the website selected that price. I was trying to change it, but it didn't let me do it, so I just told myself "let me submit it, and then start communicating with designers about designs and prices". Again, I apologize if I disrespected any of you. Also, the reason of why I went for that price was because the designers from CGTrader and other websites like that one have designed many prototypes, and they sell it for $95 - $200. Yes, it is only the exterior, but they are very detailed, so I didn't know what price you were expecting.

What I was trying to get was a design that I can actually build the car physically. Why do I want to do such a crazy thing? Well, just like anyone has dreams such as travel to certain country, buying a big house, or buying a Ferrari, my dream is to build something crazy just because I have so much passion for it. What I want to build is a kit car like the kit car replica of the Bentley Speed 8 by Aeromaster LMP. I can buy that kit car and start building it, but I don't like that prototype, plus I am not so convinced that that chassis will be very strong. Another kit car that gets my attention because of its strong chassis is the Superlite Coupe SLC, another example for a better idea.

At the end of the day, it's a hubby that I really like, and a dream, so please, with all my respect, if any of you think that you can design a prototype kit car please email me. As I mentioned before, go to Aeromaster LMP and Superlite Coupe SLC, so you can have a better idea of what I would like to do. IF you can't do this, please don't leave a message or reply to my email with an attitude. Please.

Thank you,

Julien Dupays

I found blueprints of the Toyota TS020. I can do it with the same quality as the Peugeot 908 that I have provided.

Hello, I can do this work, in past I have done this type project but the issue is I have done it by using SolidWorks not with AutoCAD, I can do this with using SolidWorks. If you are ready with SoildWorks then I can finish it. Pls check my portfolio you can find similar kind of work there.

What might work well for you is to have one designer model one subsystem of the car and then develop the rest of the car with said designer afterwords. I understand that this is to be a visual model and not a physically race-spec vehicle, so as long as parts are proportional will that do?

$800 to design a car?

I think you have unrealistic expectations and a profound disrespect of the capabilities of any engineer or designer. This type of project would require many prototypes and subsequent modifications. There is months of work here and I feel your $800 would be exhausted by the first three days.

What exactly do you expect to get for the indicated price? I'm a bit confused since, if this is a serious project, it should be clear that the development and design of a spaceframe and body requires considerable time and effort on an ongoing basis...

iPod / iPhone Case with integrated right angle lens.
Design and prototype an iPhone and iPod touch case that incorporates a right angle lens and 2x zoom lens. Also maybe model a cavity for extra battery pack if possible. A laser pointer would be a bonus. I realize the components will result in a somewhat bulky design. I am ok with that. Also, not sure how to budget here. Putting 1000 to start.

Design PCB from BOM and board dimensions. Circuit design should resemble photos. Provide all files necessary to manufacture PCB. Schematic, Gerber, etc.
Enclosure design for a building automation product
Our company is looking for enclosure designs for a set of 3 PCB modules which can connect together to form one single product. Our chosen manufacturer uses folded plastic sheet, although design ideas do not need to be limited to this process. The main board can feature as a standalone product but in many cases will be connected with the HV and I/O submodule boards, in which case they need to form a single product. There should be a lock-in mechanism on the side panels of the main enclosure to allow connection with HV board and I/O board. The Main board will have an LED panel illuminating the company logo (which will change colours based on the product status). Each individual enclosure should be DIN rail mountable. The top and bottom inputs and outputs modules on each board should be exposed so that appropriate connections can be made without opening the box. The way the three modules assemble together into one product should be similar to this: http://sie.ag/1E7emGo Beyond the technical specifications we are looking for a fresh design to take away the feel of an industrial product and make this looks more like a consumer product. We are looking for something sleek and fresh with the look and feel of a quality product.

Additionally the robot needs to have an interchangeable stand to make it taller like the Double ipad stand. http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Here are some of the specs the robot needs to possess so you can factor it into the design: Size: 56 x 35 x 35 cm Weight: 5-8kg with the majority of the weight at the bottom of the robot Exterior Components: • Rechargeable battery pad/station Interchangeable Modules: • Butler face head • Screen face head • Stand (Double Like) to extend height http://www.doublerobotics.com/ Internal Component: • 1080HD w night vision camera • 2W speaker with 22mm diaphragm • 1 microphone • 1HDMI output • 1USB output • 1SD card slot • Range finder sensors • Ground detection sensors • Object Detection sensors • 4 motors feedback control • Head rotation 2 Axes: 1st +/- 90°, 2nd +80°/-60° • Base Movement 360° (2 drive wheels, 3rd support wheel) • Electrical Rechargeable Battery • Wifi & SIM Card Deliverable: 1) Butler Robot looking mostly like the attached mascot with an interchangeable screen module and rechargeable pad design 2) Adjustable height stand – see Double for reference 3) Video showing its movement and interchangeable module in order to show to the client 4) Manufacturing specifications
Inventor product block maintenance
We have a large number of CAD blocks representing our product range which require alteration. The work is quite straight forward but high in volume. There will be a number of weeks work with the potential for ongoing work. An understanding of the vault filing system used for Inventor would be an advantage but is not essential.
