Brake caliper modelling  1-20  21-40

Ciao to everybody!
I'm doing my third model with Moi and i've choose a brake caliper (i've found the blueprints of a 6 piston brembo caliper (they come from brembo racing catalog)....if some of you want them to draw i'll mail you without any problem).
Following Michael's advices i've started from the simple body, building it with boolean operation....and step after step...i'm doing some details.....

I placed the reference images on views to help me and then i started the basic modelling...
















then i started to add the first detail as some holes and some fillets...and they work....







but when i've started to do some fillets on the lower side of the caliper i had some problems....So...first i verified if the model was ok and it seems ok to me...so I thought that the problem was caused by some complex shape....so i've tried to solve the problem with some other option...i tried to do a profile to create a sweep and with boolean function i've created my fillet....













I know it's not a conventional way to obtain a fillet....but it works to me...do you think is a good way to follow when the fillet are not possible to made or not?
Thanks in advance for any opinions :)
I'll keep this thread upgraded with new steps :)
SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH
Arian

Hi Arian, it looks like you're making very good progress there! This is definitely a better type of approach.

That is not a bad way to create a fillet if the regular fillet tool is not working.

If you want some feedback on why that particular fillet you show in the screenshot did not work, please post the 3DM model file (or e-mail it to me at moi@moi3d.com if you want to keep it private) so I can take a more detailed look at your object and see if I can offer any further tips.

It's hard for me to give very good feedback based only on a screenshot, but my best guess is that it's related to these areas here having some little pieces of geometry:


MoI's filleter will not work properly if the fillet would need to totally consume away some existing edges or entire faces of the model and it looks like that will probably happen there unless you use a pretty small fillet radius.

- Michael

Ciao!
here some of the upgrades that i've done today ;)

I did some particular on the upper side....








Then i did a big fillet by sweep on the lower side then i've added the two fixing holes and to the end i added two reinforcing rib.


















And then i added a lot of fillets to the caliper body, two new parts (a clip and a pin) and i did the pistons holes.

Ciao Pilou!
Thank you very much
Yes...it should be that one :)
My goal is to take an idea from that caliper...not to reproduce 100% identical :)
This is my third model with Moi so it still difficult to me to reproduce everything because i'm learning the program and i'm fighting with fillet....but thanks to this fight...i'm learning the right approach to draw with Moi3d and i'm learning something new...and i'm happy of it :)
My goal is to produce the entire caliper....and maybe the brake disc too...entirely on Moi...without using any other 3d program for fillet....i want to use only Moi3d :)
I often do automotive rendering and often the 3d model are very accurated and nice about the exterior lines but sometimes the brake caliper and disc are really bad and of poor quality....so i'd love to have my 3d brake system to use it on my 3d rendering :) ....and Moi3d is helping me to realize it :)
Sorry for my english
Arian

Nice modelling for someone less than a week into Moi - You're doing great buddy, keep it coming and don't apologise for your english, your point is coming across just fine.

Today i was home from work so this morning i did some upgrade to this work...

I did the caliper pistons:
















After that i did the rotor seat on the caliper ( don't know the correct name in english :( :( :( ) and i did its fillets!









Then, i did the superior clip and i started to fight with some fillets that give to me some problem...








I wasn't able to do the fillets with fillet command so i helped my self with sweep and boolean actions...








and....it worked! :)





This is the actual caliper until now...



..this afternoon i'll work another little...then i'll try to do pads and rotors too :)
Ciao
Arian

Coming along nicely Arian, nice trick with the boolean ops to get the fillet you want ;)

Thank you Martin :D

Here we are...another upgrade...
I did the oil holes....










Then i did the screws to fix the clip and the superior little frame....






and also the clip to close the oil holes.




Then I proceeded with the creation of the seat for the pads stopper on the lower side of the caliper....






....and i do the fillet on the lower side of the caliper.




then... in prevision to do some animation with this model i wanted to add some details so i did the thread on the screws....






and the last thing...i did the 4 pads stopper and their fixing screws...








The caliper should be complete now...and this is how it looks now...








Tomorrow I'll start with pads and rotor :)
