Planes, Trains and Automobiles (and a Few Ships Too): Transportation 3D Models from the GrabCAD Community
With summer right around the corner, everyone is eagerly awaiting their travel plans. Whether you’re traveling by air, by land, or by sea, the GrabCAD community has a 3D model that may or may not look similar to the mode of transportation you’ll be traveling in.
In honor of the new Groups section of the GrabCAD Community, we wanted to spotlight some of our favorite 3D transportation models. If you're into automotive, aerospace, and locomotive design you can also discuss these topics on the Planes, Trains, and Automobiles group.
Here are some of our favorites.
Rendered in Keyshot, this model of an old two-door Mercedes 560, designed by GrabCAD member Charlie Borg, would definitely turn some heads.
This realistic rendering of the Titanic was designed by Harish Kumar from raw sketches and even includes an iceberg.
4WD Single Seat Hayabusa Powered Dune Buggy
Designer Daniel Clarke says that this complex machine is too expensive for him to build, but he knows that this buggy would be a powerful rider if it ever did get built.
Dream Cruise Ship
We would take a cruise on designer Hoang Trung Son’s comfortable 12-room ship any summer day.
According to GrabCAD member Rex, this 1988 Gilera Saturno bears a similar resemblance to the 1986 Hagiwara/Otani SR500 and the 1992 Suzuki Goose 350, all which have trellis frames and plates attached to the engine/swingarm/suspension.
The Cadillac of the Skies
This radio control airplane is being deemed the Cadillac of the skies. With some help from SOLIDWORKS, Keyshot and Photoshop, designer Michel Gutierrez brought this plane to life.
This realistic railway coach, which took GrabCAD member Akshaya Simha 10 hours to design, is a replica of a commonly used coach in India.
A very realistic render of an Airbus A380, made by Shaylesh Roy.
