This s a great post and thank you for showing us all of the details!

BTW, what 3d CAD program are you using?

Thanks Dan.

For CAD I'm using Solidworks. I have a very old seat, but its great for moto stuff.

SolidWorks is the beez neez, good for you! I have just downloaded the latest version but have not had time to get into it. I have some experience with SW 2005 so it has been quite a while. Since that time I've used Creo (used to be Solid Designer) and before that ME30. We have recently transitioned to Siemens NX which is incredibly difficult for me to understand.

I'm a bit envious that you're getting exposure to the top three CAD programs. A few years ago I was a contractor at GoPro. At the time we were working on development of Hero5 camera. There were some new guys that came over from Apple and were NX users. A few engineers were using Creo, and few of us using Solidworks. It was like the wild wild west with anything goes. I was the lucky guy that got to wrangle everyone's sub-assemblies into one master assembly. That was fun trying to import/export between the three CAD programs. It certainly kept me on my toes for sure.

At home I have SW 2006 that I use for the moto projects. There are a few modern features I wish I had access to but (as you can see) I'm doing okay with it as-is.

While we're taking about CAD, I'll put out a shameless plug and mention that I'm currently out of work and looking for employment. My background is in consumer product development with the past 6 years working more specifically on light EVs. It doesn't show in my motorcycle work, but my expertise is in injection molded plastic part design.

Again, nice chatting with you.

Injection molded plastic is in my wheel house also. My engineering definition is basically the non-analyzer infrastructure engineering design. This is on high end gas phase or liquid phase mass spectrometers and includes everything not in the vacuum system. Structure, card cages, external enclosure, operator interface, serviceability, manufacturability, shock, vibration, all other QA testing, etc. etc.

Creo was easiest and best at this. It is no longer supported so we have to transition to NX (corporate decision).

It is a tough row to hoe but I have to make it work...
