Making the Tesla Cybertruck in Mastercam

Modeling up the new Tesla Cybertruck in Mastercam! This ground breaking (window breaking too) new design is awesome,  just couldn't resist playing around with it!

Tesla Cybertruck Part-1

Tesla took the world by storm when they released the design of the new Cybertruck. To say it's a completely new design for a truck is an understatement! Love it or hate it, it is definitely interesting.

Why create the Cybertruck in Mastercam? Modeling a fancy car with all it's complex shapes and curves is extremely difficult. Years of experience and hours and hours and hours and...you get the idea...it takes a really long time to model something like a Porshe GT3 RS. This thing...you can whip one up in no time! Plus, it's actually kinda cool. The design does grow on ya a bit.

This would be a great part not only for modeling, but multiple machining setups, multiple plane creations, level usage....and I have some ideas for machining detail which could be fun. This is something you could easily cut on the machines, whether 3 or 5 axis (the 3 axis would be a couple setups). This is something we could turn into a Mastercam lesson in both 3 and 5 axis setups. 

If this is something you would be interested in for yourself or for your students, let me know and we'll carry on with this project!

If all this talk on the Cybertruck is new to you, here's a link that should get you up to speed...
