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

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...

Smart Bed Design
1. We are looking for you to design a moving smart bed. This bed will be used by consumers in their bedroom to improve sleep and help with sleep disorders. 2. The main part if the Gough-Stewart platform under the bed. You will understand this platform with the following material: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a7/Hexapod_general_Anim.gif https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Stewart-platform_fig12_289097700 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmKnnp1xTPg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d84X60If2vM The bed will move along all three xyz axis and be able to rotate along each axis. You design for a 160cm wide bed and you will have to decide about the best measures of the platform. The upper ring hold the motors can be of greater, lower or same size as the bottom ring. If you want to propose an alternative platform construction for the platform, let us know. On image 1 you see that there are additional braces on the lower ring going to head and end part of the bed. They prevent the bed from tilting and they have to exist also on the lateral sides. 3. Have a look at images 2- 3 to see how the platform is attached to the bed frame with its upper ring. We have also attached the 3D.smt file of these images. The duckboard will be put in this bedframe and on top of it a mattress as in a regular bed. Design a light-weight, stylish bedframe that can be presented to non-technical customers. Be free in your creativity (colors, shapes etc.). Experiment with measures to find the balance between flexibility in movement and stylish design. Image 4 is ONE example for a bedframe (without the side extensions at the head part; the polished wood texture looks nice, the edges are rounded, the matress is overall covered in a white frame). 4. The bed has to be equipped with LED lights and loudspeakers. It has to be stylish and innovative and combine modern technology with human’s tradition of sleep. LED lights could be attached to the outer bedframe for example. Ideally you provide two textures of the bed (e.g. wood, white) Add pillows, blankets in the color you like. 5. Put the bed in a surrounding that you think fits: e.g. stylish bedroom, big panorama window or even plain area etc. 6. Finally, we need the 3D files of the smartbed. Please take the following shots of the model: - only the mechanical platform - mechanical platform with bedframe and without mattress with duckboard - mechanical platform with bedframe and with mattress - mechanical platform with bedframe and with mattress with LED lights turned on - close up of the LED and loudspeakers - It is not a must, but will be a plus, if you animate the movement of the bed so that it rocks like a rocking bed The more perspectives, the better. If you have two versions of the bed (e.g. wood, white), show us the pictures in both versions. 7. Intended audience: Your model will be presented to large customer audience and we will give the winner credit. The pictures need to look very realistic. We want to work with the winner for future projects (e.g. animating the bed movement). We are willing to select several winners.
