Just Started Using CADRE

Just Started Using CADRE

Just Started Using CADRE

We just bought a copy of Carre Pro.  I have to say i am very impressed with the quality of the tutorials.  Our first project will be to model an aircraft seat frame made from 4130 steel tubing.

RE: Just Started Using CADRE

If possible, it might be of interest to other Cadre users if you could post some of your results, clearly a question for your employer.  I used Cadre for a few months and liked the program.  Eventually due to building code requirements I needed to get a program that handled multiple load cases more efficiently.


RE: Just Started Using CADRE

Hi Mike,

I think it might be useful as well.  Fortunately for us we do not need to worry about as manny load cases. I will share what can as I progress through the project.


RE: Just Started Using CADRE

Thanks sjbjcl,

All the work I did with Cadre was just using line elements so the models are not very interesting to look at.  My work now involves designing cement silos and aggregate bins which are made up of plates and stiffeners, something I hope to model in the future with Cadre.  At least that's the plan.


RE: Just Started Using CADRE

I am afraid that my effort is not much more intersting. The model of the seat frame was mostly generated using lines in AutoCAD and then saved as a DXF file. Pretty basic stuff...
