"Actual engineering CAD"?
show user profile  Dejitarujin
I'd like to direct your attention towards this link right here.

The creator states it was created with the "actual engineering CAD". As he states there are no problems with accuracy, that must mean either he's telling the truth, or has accuracy standards far more lax than mine.

I'm familiar with where to find top-front-side "blueprints", of which a Jeep Wrangler does not exist at all (I've checked). But where the heck do you get engineering CAD files? o_O

most likely he used the CAD as reference in the viewport to make his mesh. The mesh from CAD data is not very clean.

The Jeep CAD files were offered for free download on as well as a Dodge Viper and some other Chrysler car.

I imagine the fact that he is selling the car that is 'based' off of the CAD files isn't exactly legal, since those CAD files were release for personal/educational use, and "derivative work" infringes on the copyright. Even if he isn't selling the CAD itself, the fact that he based his models off of the CAD data (and is boldly claiming so!) may not be the smart thing to advertise :-) Assuming that's where he got the CAD data.

Usually you have to get the CAD data from agencies that work directly with the car manufacturers, and usually you are working for them on the project, so you can't exactly give/sell the data away, or any derivative work. So in either case, I would say what he is doing isn't very smart. -

... Could anyone perhaps point me in the direction of those files? I most definitely have some personal uses for them. @.@
