Re: First roll bar analysis picture
Yeah, I know I want to do some more analysis too. We only have one license of Mechanica here, and it is shared between engineers and designers. It has been pretty busy with work stuff, so I am hoping to get a run in over the weekend, and post another on on Monday. I plan on hitting it from several angles, and multiple angles.
I do have another picture, with the basic CJ 7/YJ shape "faked" in around the bar. Basically I sort of drew the body in from memory, and a picture of my jeep at my desk during lunch today.
I also learned how to output the 3d model as a VRML file, to view with cosmo player 2.0 (and other programs, I am sure). That means you can download free software, and spin, zoom, rotate the model as if it were 3d, if you have a fast machine and a good graphics card.
I am posting the picture here, but the zipped up vrml file is too big. If someone has an FTP site or something I can send the vrml file to for you to post for download, then I will.
Then we can download it and see the bar, and basically where it will be in the body from any angle.
This picture does not show the gussets, and the ones it shows are gonna change to the outside of the bar, not the centerline.
