The “Get Crazy” Razor Crazy Cart Design Challenge

Medium

Trick out the 2014 Outdoor Toy of the Year -The Razor Crazy Cart.

Solid Edge® by Siemens PLM Software is sponsoring the first-ever Crazy Cart design challenge with Luxion, makers of KeyShot®, and joint customer Razor USA. We want to see your passion for design! Use your knowledge, skill, and creativity to create the coolest and most awesome Crazy Cart ever.

Trick out the Razor Crazy Cart, edit the original CAD model and create cool renderings and animations using Solid Edge and KeyShot. Solid Edge ST7 Classic and Premium versions integrate KeyShot rendering capabilities, so you can create amazing photorealistic images of your design concurrently with your modeling operations. The combined solution provides the fastest, easiest way to create beautiful product images and processes.

Getting started


1. Start with the Razor Crazy Cart File by downloading it from the KeyShot models page on GrabCAD. Be sure to use the official logos and decals provided there, as well.

2. Download a 45-day trial version of Solid Edge at siemens.com/plm/try-solid-edge or call 800-807-2200. The trial includes access to interactive tutorials, video tips and a user forum to help you harness the power of Solid Edge.

3. Review a handy blog article from Matt Lombard on how to use KeyShot within Solid Edge.

4. If you’re a Solid Edge user and new to KeyShot, you can download KeyShot, and easily learn more, or view quick tips and tutorials on KeyShot.

5. Visit the Razor Crazy Cart Facebook page for some mod ideas!

    in description they say that we have to render the model using intergration, I mean there is no way that I am going to delete my ST5 to install ST7 for 45days just to use integration, so is it ok to render it by using Keyshot normaly?

    Thanks,

    @Philip LaRoach You should import the parasolid into Solid Edge, make your mods, and then export the new model as a native Solid Edge format (along with exporting a STEP version).
    @project_118 Yes, that's right. Start with the Razor Crazy Cart File by downloading it from Razor USA Crazy Cart on GrabCAD. Be sure to use the official logos and decals provided there, as well. You should also download a 45-day trial version of Solid Edge at http://siemens.com/plm/try-solid-edge.
    @chaouki ben hassine Try the number provided, 800-807-2200, or the support page at Solid Edge if you're having issues getting the download. Be sure to check that your browser allows downloads and try a different one when filling out the form.

    @Jeremy Hooter praveen kumar Part of the Challenge is giving a new software a try. So trying Solid Edge and KeyShot are a must. It's a great way to learn something new and add to your skill set.
    @selwin lisand Mod that crazy cart like a jet! Go for it! But, the jet engine may be a little much for the cart to handle. Be sure to explain what you did and why.
    @Cadstorming If you can find a way to make that work, then yes! Now that you say that, it makes me think of how cool it'd be to see one with a clear engine cover like an old hot rod. http://www.bongos.net.au/images/detailed/27/Greased_Lightning_08.jpg

    My Keyshot doesn't seem to have animations either.

    Originally the "Animation Wizard" button was greyed out. I checked for updates, updated, and now I can click on the "Animation Wizard" button. But now it prompts me to "Upgrade to the full Animation module", which takes me to the Keyshot website to purchase it.

    Am I supposed to get the 14 day trial so I can do the animations?

    Scott Rodgers has uploaded 2 CAD models & has left 86 comments.
  • Scott Rodgers

    Scott Rodgers over 2 years ago

    Okay, I found you need to do all the animation movements and such in a Solid Edge assembly, and then have it opened and rendered in Keyshot.
    Wish I would have known that before watching all the Keyshot animation tutorial videos. Oh well.

    SolidEdge is actually one great software, but you see I remember the time I was using it and competing as high school student in Belgrade capital of Serbia, I won 4-th place in that modeling competition as I was skilled.
    Righte now after using SW I think I will never get back to SE, and SIEMENS has to learn to improve the interface and software, not marketing.

    Thanks Tommy, can you introduce me shortly the site you linked, you can send me a message. :)

    Selwin,

    There's a lot of things that can affect stability, so I can't begin to guess which one(s) is causing you troubles.

    I see you have a .step file uploaded. I'll take a look at it and see if it worked.

    I see you only uploaded the .asm file. That doesn't contains enough info about your design. I think you need to upload all the Solid Edge files too (.asm, .par, .cfg)

    In the meantime, do what you can to make your entry even better.

    Scott Rodgers has uploaded 2 CAD models & has left 86 comments.
  • Scott Rodgers

    Scott Rodgers over 2 years ago

    Selwin, (and anyone else with .step file troubles) it looks like some of your parts are made of Design bodies and Construction bodies. You have to either:
    Turn all the construction bodies to design bodies before exporting them.
    -or-
    When you export your design as a .step file, there are three buttons "Options...", "Save", and "Cancel". Choose "Options". There check the "Export solids (constructions)", hit "Okay", and it will include all the construction bodies in your .step file when you hit "Save".

    That's a relief because I need every hour I can get. My scenes have a lot shiny parts and several light sources, so it's taking my computer 24 hours to render 16 seconds of animation at 800 x 600 x 30 fps. It does look nice though.

    For those still needing to get animation done, I would recommend keeping it simple, using a lower resolution, and/or using a lower framerate. There's still enough time to get something impressive done.

    Scott good advice, Two nights in a row I've started renderings and have had them crash before I woke up.

    Philip LaRoach has uploaded 29 CAD models & has left 122 comments.
  • Scott Rodgers

    Scott Rodgers over 2 years ago

    Philip (and anyone who had a crash), even if it crashes while doing an animation, the rendered frames are still saved and you can pick up where it left off. You'll have to use a program (I use VirtualDub) to stitch the frames together into a movie.
    .
    Another time saver, any scene in your animation where everything is stopped for a while, you might want to have KeyShot only do one frame before making things move again. You can just copy and paste that one frame to make it into a dramatic pause.
    .
    If you see yourself running out of time, just pick out the animations you want to show and just render those scenes. It won't be perfect, but you'll have something to show for your work. I put together an amazing final scene, but it would have taken 5 days to process. So I'm rendering a few clips and will put them together right before the deadline and pray it's good enough.

    I won't be making any updates to my entry here, but I am tempted to download elements from my favorite entries and combine them into a big Franken-Crazy-Cart-enstein before my 45 day Solid Edge Trial runs out. If I do it, I'll put upload it elsewhere on GrabCAD and post a link here. Anyone else want to give it a try?

    It's a great sequel. I was hoping to do an animation with drifts and maneuvers like that, but ran out of time and had to settle for something shorter and simpler.

    I don't really have a native CAD that can do it right now. If I get a paying side job in the near future, I'll get a Solid Edge subscription. If there's any time left over after I've done the job, I'll look at finishing the Cartenstein.

    The finalists will be announced about a week before the winners Thomas Stokhof de Jong so stay tuned. It's going to be so much fun looking at all the models, renderings and animations you all put together! I love the idea of a mashup of all the entries Scott Rodgers, here's hoping you get a native license to finish that off.

    Thanks to everyone who participated! There were a lot of creative solutions and many learned new skills by trying software that was outside of their comfort zone.
