  5. Finished your car design - What next? Before making a request to have your design manufactured by Yas Marina Circuit there are some important things to do and consider: Check that the design complies with the Technical Regulations - most commonly students will design cars which are too long, too wide or too tall. It is important to check the maximum permitted car length in the regulations. Car bodies are not permitted to be as long as the actual Foam Model Block. This is because a portion of the Foam Block is held via a clamp during the actual CNC machining process. Ensure that no part of the body or other features such as wings which are to be made from foam block protrude beyond the block width of 65mm and block height of 50mm Wings designed to be manufactured from the foam block which are less than 3mm in thickness could break off during manufacturing and will be more prone to breakage during racing. The final step in Autodesk Inventor, in preparation for manufacture, is to add a manufacturing reference plate to the rear of the car. Instructions for this are presented below. The car body with reference plate added must be saved in .STL (stereo lithography) file extension format. This file format is required for compatibility for use with the CAM (Computer Aided Manufacture) software used by us to generate the machining code. ADDING A MACHINING REFERENCE PLATE Add the manufacturing reference plate | save as .STL | upload the .STL when submitting your manufacturing request to YMC F1 in Schools The final step before uploading your manufacturing request and completed design is to add a manufacturing reference plate as per the instructions document linked below. The reference plate is used during the CAM process to accurately locate your car model relative to the pre-machined C02 cartridge hole in the actual foam F1 Model block. Adding Manufacturing Reference Plate: AD Inventor-Add-reference plate guide.pdf EXPORTING THE CAR BODY INCLUDING REFERENCE PLATE AS A .STL FILE The following linked PDF explains how to export your design as an STL correctly. It is important to check this document as it explains how to export the file in the correct dimensional format. Autodesk STL Saving.pdf (Thanks to Jonathan Roberts from Repton School for sharing both of the above support files) If you have any questions or suggestions, please post them here by replying to this topic...
  6. A great way to get started with students or to promote the project within your school is to use the PowerPoint presentation available for download from the link below. F1inSchools-Overiew-V1.pptx The presentation includes several videos and these will be streamed directly into the presentation from YouTube, therefore it is necessary to be internet connected to view these. Each video takes a few seconds to load. You may also need to allow access to external sources (YouTube in this case), if prompted by your computer when opening the file.
  7. An overview of the how the F1 in Schools technologies are used by studnets through the different stages of the F1 in Schools program
  8. Rookie Class teams must use the standard wheels supplied by F1 in Schools for their car designs. Use this link to download a standard wheel SolidWorks part file that can be used in CAD assemblies. http://f1-in-schools-torque.invisionzone.com/index.php?/files/file/1-%7B?%7D/
