Additional Vehicle Turning...
« on: March 20, 2018, 12:23:30 AM »
Hi

Forgive me if I state the obvious as I'm a new user...

I need to plot the turning circle for a few mine site vehicles.
There are either 2 or 3 axles with a pivot between the first and second axle.
I couldn't find a template in Cadtools.
Is it possible to create a custom vehicle which can be put on this website for sharing, and checking?

Caterpillar
ADT 745C
ADT 740D
FEL 980K

Thanks

Pete

Similar to a 'bendy bus' AASHTO A-BUSM but single axle at the front

I used negative numbers for the pivot point of the bendy bus and it looks OK.
Had to take a guess at the missing fields

Would be great if you could change the picture when creating a new vehicle

For MSTurn2 there will be a tab for saving an image of your own (image of a specific vehicle)

I stand to be corrected here but when the ADT 745C turns I think it turns around the pivot point and not by turning the front wheels and dragging the trailer.

Not sure if that makes a difference.
