Time to design an intercooler! Our first step toward this goal was to remove the intercooler so we could collect all the data points we needed. All front-end components were then removed from the truck to provide access.
Take a look at the factory cooler tanks, mounting brackets and core!
Once we had the factory intercooler out of the truck, we set it up on our CMM table to grab all the dimensions we needed. Using our Romer arm, we can collect critical points in a controlled environment and use them in Solidworks to develop a prototype. Check out a shot of this intercooler being modeled!
Once we collected all our points on both the intercooler and the body of the vehicle, our engineering team set to work designing our prototype in 3D!
Now that we had our prototype designed in Solidworks, it was time to work up an actual functional unit for test fitting and actual on-vehicle testing. Check back with us next time for a look at our prototype intercooler!
