Fork Design

This part focus’ on the creation of the trike fork. The fork of the trike will be used both for supporting the main wheel and also being the link to steering the wheel. Stuart has taken a technical document found freely on the internet to base his design. Using this he designs and creates his own inside SolidWorks. The video below contains the complete process from sketch to fork including hints and tips which will be applicable to all SolidWorks users.

In creating the forks you will cover many topics including;

  • Layout Sketches
  • Lofts
  • Sweeps
  • Complex features
