Class 43 IC125: the body
Tracing the locomotive body profile with Inkscape and creating a unique path with it was fun and quite an easy job. The tricky part started when I imported the drawing inside FreeCAD: the path created inside Inkscape was not straightforward to be converted into FreeCAD objects. After some trials I found the workaround (I used my experience as software CAD engineer 😉 ): to make the created objects completely compatible with the FreeCAD version I currently use. Now the locomotive section is ready and extruded through the whole length of the body.
I’m ready for the new 3D geometry challenge: the cabin.
