To start the project, 3D Engineers was recruited to scan an existing Aston Martin DBR2 replica and subtly manipulate the subsequent data to enable the creation of a vehicle with revised features. In particular the bodywork aft of the doors was revised to create a vehicle that not only more faithfully followed the original car’s lines, but as a useful by-product, also increased the boot volume.
Once the design had been agreed, 3D Engineers then moved the project onto its next stage with the design and manufacture of a buck – a tool used to create aluminium car bodies – which was commissioned at the client’s chosen body manufacturer.
The buck was specifically designed to break down into five distinct modules, so that storage and work space could be saved and parts of the body produced in sections on a work bench if required.
Working with 3D Engineers has always been a pleasure.
By taking the time at the start of a project to tie down the details of the brief, an accurate costing for time and materials is achieved.
Also, by working with the end user from the start a buck can be produced to meet the production requirements at the bodywork stage.
