Case K2 Cabs

Post by ras101 »

Ok guys. We have spent a while discussing how this section should look and feel. At the end of the day its really your decision.

Lets just start a K2 cab section!!!

Just a forward: I hate case cabs!!!! the front window angle is way too pronounced, The doors make mounting and dismounting almost impossible for a handicap (read me) person, the doors are at best flimsy and well the cab is claustrophobic etc. My cab drawings are based on mods I have made, new type doors, front viability improved and above all roomy too. Lets just call these cabs K2 plus plus.. Oh, you will find I have modified the roof an inch longer, reduced the front angle and added more space there too, power wipers.. etc..

OK, so the above post gave F3X and D files and are generic Fusion 360 files. So I know when you open them they don't display what I want a flat file drawing with dimensions so where does that leave me? How does that help? Well everything you need is included in the meta data of the file. With a little work to understand Fusion you have it all. The models were created very accurately and fusion gives you tools to explore the whole drawing. You can rotate and zoom, measure the distance, create a flat picture of the part with measurements, angle, etc.

Soooo, you are probably saying right now... want to download your own Free copy?

So lets start posting some intelligent .F3z files... For me these are the files that will make a difference! I don't want to be the only participant here either! As you now know if you looked at my previous posting of dwg files I have some opinions to share. Are you worried? Want to hear what I have learnt over more than 45 years (well I am 75 now!). I first never like to stand still!, for me there is always something lacking even though I can put up for a while with the status quo. Are you the same?

So for me being a dual Brit/American things get very complicated too. Lived with postage stamp property (in the UK) to acres in the US so what would you do?

For me I chose CASE/INGERSOLL! would you?

So living in WNY I need a snow tractor! sometime 24 inches overnight, sometimes nothing.. What would you do?

A tractor mounted snow blower to me was a starter (yeah I also have a walk behind too). Well that was fine for a season or too, but I am getting old and my neighbors too and I started doing their yards too. So now my Case 446 with snowblower needed more? Next came a K2 cab!! Problem was the cab was very not there! the doors were busted open, by that I mean that they did not close properly and the roof was rusted through, well you got it.. A $500 find that just did not live up to expectation..

o what do you do? If you are like me I looked internally! I wanted MY OWN ! what you are part f now is my design from basic design flaws that in my opinion did not help sell the Cab. Do I have all the answers...wish I did..want help.. most definitely.. Will to share where I am - most definitely.. want to help the best cab ever?

All I could find is windows and mac only not Chrome Book . There is an online viewer I found but the drawings are but a speck on the page . I have limited personal, computing, and internet connection.

@Eugen I thought the f3d files are the large heavy ones. Would that not be worse ?
I'm confused .

They're a little larger than dwg but hold a lot more information, in a sense they are a superset of the dwg, because if you wanted you could generate dwg from them. See this one attached here.

@DavidBarkey you pretty much have identified one of the major problems with this format.

To actually fabricate a part the most useful type of drawing is a lot different than the 3D model. It would have various views and cross sections and all dimensions clearly stated. And that would be a pdf file, or jpeg, basically an image. The 3D model is useful if you want to modify it.

There is a way to use Fusion 360 to create a "DRAWING" but it involves quite a lot of work because you need to decide which views or cross sections to show, and which dimensions/sizes to show on the drawing. The best person to do this is usually the creator of the 3D model, and in our case that would be @ras101

I said this from the beginning, it's great to have the 3D models, but most people will not be able to do anything with them. Most people need just the 2D dimensional drawings, and they can be added here as pdf.
