Opportunity to replicate M3 CSL intake

Recommended Posts

I'd love to help if possible. By day I am a Senior MDE, however specialising in machine design using Solidworks.

By night, I am a, I have no idea....

If Ollie needs a hand, I'd be happy to help.

Cheers,

Heck, shake a tree arround here and half a dozen engineers fall out!

On the scanning fron I have used Formscan in silverdale before for work. Results were good. The majority of the part was 0.1mm accurate with some areas or rounds out by up to 0.35mm including CAD finishing. Part was smallish (450mm*100mm*100mm). It probably works out cheaper than hiring a CAD jockey to build a model from scratch.

Not that we have a CAD shortage it would seem!

Nope .... didn’t actually get any offers to replicate it from anyone.

So sad 😭 

 

hard to believe, really. Such an amazing opportunity!

 

As an aside, still got a spare box you’d consider selling?

I think given there are so many replicas now available it probably wasn’t worth the effort!

Buy the latest Karbonious airbox - well priced and very very well constructed.

You don’t want to pay for a genuine airbox !!! They are astronomical to buy nowdays ... even beat up used ones!
