What is the CAD program you use?

I'm a CAD engineer for a small Aerospace company. I have made a few things for my bikes as well. I can't do all that I want because I am not suppose to be working on my own stuff :D

We have AutoCAD, Surf cam, and Merry Mech for the CNC punch.

We have 2 Komo CNC routers, Fedal mill, Finn Power punch press and 3 CNC brakes.

Nice work, I like the case saver!

I was planning on making a front disk guard with "WR 426" cut out.

I modified a set of tires that let me ride all winter and offer some defense against polar bears.

Lowedog, would you be interested in making/selling any of those parts. I am especially interested in the chain cover, the case saver and the rack.

Sorry guys. I haven't been on in awhile. Moved to a new house and haven't got the computer up and running yet.

I do work in a machine shop as a tool maker. The CNC I use has both Mastercam and a conversational program. I can program at the machine. Brett is a programer at our shop and made the programs for the sprocket guard and the gas cap. They let us use the equipment on our own time.

We would like to maybe start our own shop some day. Time is an issue though and it's hard to get free time for stuff like this. Doesn't leave too much time for riding. :D

If you are interested in any of the stuff, PM me or click contact on our site. We are going to make some sprocket covers for the WR/YZ 250F's soon and also the WR/YZ 400/426's. We are always interested in making something new also.

I will get my computer at home up and running this weekend.

:),

Frostbite

I can make one, but the waterjet isn't mine. My buddy makes a living with it (and doesn't ride either), so he is going to want paid. I'll call him today and see how much he wants to cut one. I'll be glad to do the cadd work & pick up the stainelss hardware. I'll let you know details tonight.
