Appendix II AutoCAD Rel.14 Drawings

My entire collection of Robin Hood 2B drawings are now available as zipped files. To view these drawings, download the zipped files, open with Winzip and select the required AutoCAD file. To read the files you will need a copy of AutoCAD Rel.14. or a .dwg viewer. Many of the drawings, particular the sheet metal parts, have no dimensions, as they are intended to be passed direct to a laser cutting machine. They are however drawn full size in mm. and once loaded into AutoCAD, dimension's can be added as required.

If you do not have AutoCad you can use a .dwg viewer. This allows you to view & print the AutoCad file, but that is all. This file is free and can be obtained via http://www.infograph.com/products/dwgviewer/ When the page opens it is the box marked FREE .DWG VIEWER Powered by BRAVA! (3rd box down)

My copy shop has had problems reproducing some of these AutoCad files and a solution was found by converting the AutoCad file to a .pdf format. It was then printed in the usual way. In future I hope to offer all these files in a .pdf format

No responsibility can be accepted for errors or omissions and the parts are used at your own risk. If in doubt consult the original car designer. These drawings are not copies of original parts but either totally new items, drawings of standard parts modified to suit my own build, or to correct minor errors etc, inevitable in the "fit all" sheet metal parts supplied with kits of this type. Always make a paper or card pattern first, before cutting expensive Stainless Steel.

It has become increasingly difficult to "maintain" the AutoCAD drawings as issues and names change etc, spread as they are throughout the text. All references to AutoCAD drawings have now been removed from the text and relocated in this file. Each section of the Manual is listed below and the drawings relevant to that section are listed within each section. Each drawing entry has a brief description. Before using these drawings check that they are relevant to your car and double check sizes etc. before manufacture. Please remember that these drawings only refer to Robin Hood 2B's in Stainless Steel purchased circa November 2002.
