I am looking for someone to do a 3D CAD design.

I need to have a truck cab complete with wheel arches and front bumper put into CAD so that I can print it off on 3D printer.

I have tried to learn CAD but I am struggling.

Is there anyone willing to do this for me. I can supply the actual 1:14.5 scale cab, wheel arches and bumper all needs to be drawn. The parts to be added is the bonnet, the grill in the bonnet, grill for the bumper, a dividing panel between cab and bonnet, a hinge intergrated in the bonnet and the grill of the bumper, off side steps, lower steps for under the cab.

Is any one up for this challenge? If so, let me know if you want payment or something etc... Ultimately it will be my flagship to start my business in this field. So more requests could follow.

Becky you may be better off getting the cab scanned in with a 3D scanner, I would imagine it will be a lot quicker (cheaper) than having to draw the whole thing out.

I don't have a 3D scanner.

Try a local college - they often have access to portable scanners and that would be the fastest route to a model. You might even get help from a contract printing house?
