Hello everyone, I’m new here and looking to learn on how to make DIY builds and also properly understand the 3d modelling side of parts. Speaking of which, is Maya okay to use for such purposes? As I’m pretty versed with that software, but I’ll learn a new software if necessary for this project. The plan is to move all the parts and components from an older build that I have and place them onto a Raptor2 deck. My friend bought the deck off Alibaba. Of course this will entail that I design and make a new enclosure that will fit with the underside of the R2 deck. My friend is well experienced in esk8 custom builds but he uses Sketchup as his go to 3D software for printing parts which puts me at odds given it’s a different software. Are there any suggestions you could give me before I venture out into the unknown with this project, like for instance the enclosure design. I’m guessing this deck was originally designed for a HUB motor? Would it be ill advised to attach a belt drive motor?
Thanks in advance!
