Moi is quite good with LARGE assemblies

Hi folks. I thought you all might like to see my latest project. This is the design for a 1 3/4" scale on 3 1/2" gauge live steam model flatcar. The model will be approx. 48" long and 15" wide (actual) when completed. The various castings on the original flatcar are drawn in Moi and will be used to create RP patterns for investment casting for the model.

The drawing has 216 solids at this point (and counting!). I had to increase the memory allocation for Moi from 2GB to 3GB since I'm running under Parallels on the Mac, but it has otherwise handled the model without any problems. Once again, the small footprint of Moi shows its true strength.

If I was doing this in SolidWorks, I think my machine would have exploded by now. LOL

Cheers,

Chris

Good job, by the way!

I like trains! Especially the diesel Art Deco era ones!

Hi Chris, it's coming along great!

Wow 216 solids already... At some point you may need to branch this out into a couple of separate files rather than everything all in one big one, but I'm glad that it has been working for you that way so far anyway!

Good going Chris, looks like you're having a ball modelling your train set and those are some fine looking hex nuts you've got there ;)

Cheers

Hi Michael. Actually, there are individual files for all of the smaller parts that will be eventually output as RP patterns. This large assembly is to make sure everything fits together as intended. Sort of a high tech "measure twice, cut once".

So... I had some free time today and dropped my model into KeyShot. This is a "fast" render, I'll see what happens when I let it run overnight.

Cheers,

Chris
