At DTNA's Western Star truck manufacturing plant in Portland, OR I was tasked with documenting the aging E-Coat lift/transfer dolly. This dolly was designed to receive cabs that have just been through the E-Coat process and take them to the oven for baking. The dolly was created specially for the plant decades ago and had no surviving documentation. My task was to take accurate measurements of the dolly and recreate it in the from of a CAD model.
I used Daimler's Siemens NX 10 CAD package to build the dolly, faithfully recreating each detail. I also added in improvement notes as I saw fit. In the end I delivered a booklet containing detail drawings for every part and assembly level drawings showing how the whole thing went together.
