3D print Recumbent bike parts model
categories: Rendering Other SolidWorks
This is a Solidworks 2013 assembly containing an articulated human on a recumbent bike/trike frame. The frame is just a reference part. You can turn the cranks and the man should pedal obediently. The purpose of the model is to check clearances in a recumbent bicycle or tricycle, particularly one with an enclosed fairing (like a Quest velomobile). Note, the human model is not fully constrained, to make it easier to drag parts around. The model was adapted from a freebie included on the bonus CD with my seat of Alias (about 15 years ago).
