Machining the F1 Car

This video from Boxford demonstrates CNC machining of an F1 car. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly the product is designed in a 3D modelling CAD package such as Pro/Desktop. It is then exported in STL format and file is processed. The routing process is then simulated using software. Next the first side of the car is machined. The material is then turned over and the second side is cut. Finally the finished product is shown with wheels added to the main body of the car. Curriculum links include the use of CAD/CAM in the designing, simulating and making of a product and the use of CNC machines to cut and engrave onto woods.
