1 TOY TRUCK Prepared by: Harry Hawkins The following project is of a small, wooden toy truck. This exercise will provide you with the procedure for constructing the various parts of the design then assembling them into the final unit. Directions for creating an album of this project are also included. You will use a variety of Pro/D tools such as extrude, revolve and others. The orthographic drawing for this project is shown in figure 1. Figure 1. Orthographic projections of project. Figure 2 shows the dimensions for the Truck Cab and figure 3 shows the dimensions for the dump bed. Figure 4 shows the dimensions for the wheels, axel and undercarriage.

2 These drawings are also located at the end of this tutorial.

The procedures for executing the design of each part will be presented separately. Each step is numbered and they should be done in the order presented. After all parts are completed, you will proceed to the assembly. Each section is appropriately named and furnishes appropriate places where breaks may be taken if so desired. The numbers will continue throughout the tutorial rather than be separate for each part. Harry Hawkins 2005 Page 3

4 AXELS 1. Open a new design and under Tools, select Options and set the Units to inches. Edit the Workplane notation from initial to Front Axel. Your screen should look like figure 5. Figure 5. New design for Front Axel. 2. Draw a 0.25 (1/4 ) diameter circle at the center of the drawing field such as shown in figure 6. This will be the profile that will be extruded. Figure 6. Axel profile.

Edit it according to figure 8. You should see a trial version of the extrusion in yellow. Press the OK button to execute the extrusion. Figure 8. Extrude Profile dialog edited for extrusion. 5. Figure 9 is the completed axel. Save this design and name it Front Axel. Figure 9. Completed Front Axel. Harry Hawkins 2005 Page 5

6 6. Create a new design. Name it Rear Axle. Use the same procedure just completed to create the rear axle. Notice it is slightly longer than the front. This so the dump bed will fit properly on the truck. Figure 10 shows the completed rear axle. Figure 10. Completed rear axle. Harry Hawkins 2005 Page 6

7 BASE (UNDERCARRIAGE) 7. The base unit or undercarriage contains a main strip that runs from the front to the rear of the vehicle and on which the cab and dump bed are eventually placed. It also contains the structures that will support the axels and wheels. First start by opening a new design and editing the initial workplane to base center. 8. Draw a Profile as shown in figure 11. You will need to use the orthographic drawings to obtain the exact dimensions. Be sure to delete all construction lines so that the profile will fill with color to indicate a valid profile. Figure 11. Base Profile ready for extrusion Rotate the view so you can see it in 3D then select the extrude profile button. Edit the dialog box according to figure 12. Press the OK button to execute. Figure 12. Extrude Profile dialog box and trial view. Harry Hawkins 2005 Page 7

8 10. The extrusion should look like figure 13. Figure 13. Extruded Base or Undercarriage Strip. 11. We will now extrude or add parts onto the front to extend the housing for the front wheels. First use the face selection tool to select the top face as shown in figure 14. The face will turn red. Figure 14. Face selected for new sketch. 12. With the face selected, right click and select New Sketch. Name it Right Front Hub. Check create workplane then click the OK button to create the sketch. 13. Click the orthographic view and zoom in on the right front of the object. Construct the new profile for the hub by drawing over the existing center hub. You will be able Harry Hawkins 2005 Page 8

9 to use the snap points of the center hub to place the lines. Be sure to delete any unwanted lines. The profile should fill and be ready to extrude such as in figure 15. Figure 15. Right front hub ready for extrusion. 14. Rotate the view so it will be in 3D then select the Extrude Profile button. Complete the dialog box to extrude a distance of Press the OK button to execute the extrusion. It should look like figure 16. Figure 16. Right front hub extruded. Rotated for clear view.

11 19. Use Extrude Profile to extrude the part a distance of After rotating, it should look like figure 19. Save this design as the Base Center. Figure 19. Completed Base Center or Undercarriage. 20. We will now design the wheel. There will be 6 wheels on the finished vehicle, 2 on the front and 4 on the rear (double on each side). The wheel is relatively easy to create and will take little time. Harry Hawkins 2005 Page 11

12 WHEEL 21. Open a new design and edit the Initial to wheel. 22. Draw a 2.0 diameter circle at the work center and then a 0.25 diameter circle at the center of the 2 circle. This should result in a profile such as shown in figure 20. Figure 20. Wheel profile. 23. Rotate the image so it will be in 3D then select the Extrude Profile button. Configure the dialog box as shown in figure 21. After configuring, press the OK button to extrude the profile. Notice the yellow trial visual of the extrusion. Figure 21.

15 CAB 28. Open a new design and name it Cab. Edit initial to cab. Construct the profile shown in figure 26. We will add the rounds later. Refer to the Truck Cab dimensions to complete this profile. Figure 26. Cab profile. 29. To construct the wheel well, delete the bottom 5 cab line then draw a.75 line from the right end of the nose to the left. Draw another line 2.75 from the left towards the nose. At the gap between these two lines, construct 3 circles of R1.25. Use the snaps to do this. Figure 27 shows the three circles drawn. The top of the red circle will be the arc. Delete all circle elements except the top arc of the red circle. The profile should fill with color. Figure 27. Constructing the wheel well arc using circles. Harry Hawkins 2005 Page 15

21 HEAD LIGHT 40. The headlight is a simple wooden hole plug. The following procedure is used to create it. Open a new design and edit initial to headlight. 41. Draw the profile shown in figure 37. This is a half profile. It may be easier to create the 0.52 circle first then delete line segments to arrive at the arc rather than drawing the arc from point to point. You can draw a straight line then use the Arc or Fillet tool to create the arc. Figure 37. Full profile before deleting line segments. 42. After deleting unwanted lines, the profile will fill with color as in figure 38. Figure 38. Half Profile ready for revolution. Harry Hawkins 2005 Page 21

22 43. Click on base in the browser window. The three workplanes will show as glass. The one on which the profile is contained, in figure 39, has a red perimeter. The other two will be seen as cross hairs. The one with the red perimeter is selected. This will be the axis about which the profile will revolve. It must be on the same workplane as the profile but in a different sketch. Right click and select New Sketch. Edit the dialog box as in figure 39. Make sure Add to workplane (base) is selected. Press the OK button to proceed. Figure 39. New Sketch added to the base workplane. 44. Draw a line over the bottom horizontal line. This will be the axis. 45.
