Preparing Geometry for Formula SAE Chassis in Ansys SpaceClaim — Lesson 1

In this lesson, we will explore a chassis frame structure made up of hollow tubes as described in the Formula SAE competition rule book. The tubular connections are triangulated to allow them to sustain loads in tension and compression.


In this lesson, you will learn how to prepare a chassis model in Ansys SpaceClaim. The process of extracting beams from solids and connecting various beam members is demonstrated.
