Group Project

By Mark Holub on 01 Jun 16:54 11 answers 0 comments

I want to start a group project with autodesk inventor. i want to assemble a team of 10 people to build an affordable super car. i'm tired of seeing everyone driving cars that to me are just boring looking. i want to build a car that will turn heads but not break the bank. if you are interested please reply back to this question. we need a minimum of 10 people in order to start working. this will be a tough task but there is a possibility of going to market.

    Hi mark
    I found the description above really impressive. However, I believe that you will need to provide with a more detail proposal regarding this project...

    e.g.In case that you are also interested to collaborate with Eng. that already have a job, (apart from students... that normally have plenty of time ;P) then a time table would be beneficial to let us understand how many hours you would expect to spend weekly...

    In addition you will give a sense for the importance of this project or generally the principle idea behind that...

    What I mean is that you might looking for 10 dedicated engineers to do the job and complete that project...
    (of course with a kind of "salary") or you might looking for an "Open Project" that will give the chance to recycle engineer's skills...

    Happy to hear more for this project

    Regards

    ioannis

    Mark, don't get me wrong, but I think, that you need to start your adventure with designing a bit slower. For such type of projects you need an experience and great engineering knowledge. It's a bit complicated to administer process of developing a car, and I believe, that 16 year old guy doesn't have background for that. You see, I just got my master degree in engineering and I have some experience, but still I wont be even average team leader, because my background is to week.

    It's great, that you want to improve your skills, but I think that in this moment you should hook up some of your class mates to make something a bit simpler, like model of simplified engine, or single parts of a car.

    I really admire your determination, but you should spend your time studying and training your cad skills, to go to university and get a degree.

    And remember, practice makes perfect. :)

    yes. very true. so maybe just a ford engine with a modified tune up? make it run with out the vibrations. like an indi car engine. the payment would have to be discussed with my uncle. he works for ford and might be able to hook us up with a chance to sell our car design to a certain company. *cough* *cough* you can design it in any cad program but it must be transffered to inventor for me to view it. i will be taking the finished pieces and assembling them granted i still have to figure that out in inventor. the project will take about 4 months if everything runs smoothly. each person will collaborate with one another to make the pieces fit together. i can tell you this though, we have a good idea for the chassis. the only thing we're totally overhauling is the body. everything else is just getting a tune up so to speak. the information i currently have is located here.

    looking for students and employed people. my uncle works for ford. i can't really say much until this thing gets moving in a closed group.

    I understand and I respect what you say. It's just that it's a bit insufficient even as an advertisement.

    Either way I would like to express my interest for this project but what is the next step
    Send any CV?
    Maybe any application that you need to go through?

    Let me know when you are ready...

    Regards

    no application. it's purely an inventive project to recommend to a certain company *cough cough* for manufacture. as soon as we have all 10 designers we can start. i will tell you though that we need a fuel efficient v8 engine if you want to start working on that while i get the rest of the group together.

    Hello

    This sounds like very serious project. I understand that you realize, that developing a brand new engine is extremely difficult quest. It takes months, or even years to create such a thing. It's very expensive as well (prototypes, etc.). As long as I remember Ford has a range of V8 engines, so there is no point to develop a new one. Especially, when you are looking for affordable super car. Even Pagani uses outsource, AMG engines.

    So, what exactly do you want to do and how. You want to assembly a team of engine specialists, or few engineers responsible of gear box, few of suspension, etc.?

    It's a great opportunity for me to work with a team of the development of Futuristic Car body and its accessories. I'm a graduated Engineer in Mechanical Discipline from Khulna University of Engineering & Technology in Bangladesh. I'm experienced in Inventor, Solidworks but my major field in Catia V5.

    Moreover, I'm interested to know the duration of the project and salary. This may carry out with the submission of CV.

    Could you please elaborate the project ? It will make a clear image.

    Thanks and Regards

    Don't get me wrong but this sounds to me like "the young me", 10 years old, talking with my friends about building a go-kart...

    I could be wrong and the team just achieved first successes...
    But have a look in your projects and your profile tells me, I'm right.
