HeeksCAR – A pinewood derby car designed in HeeksCAD

Our local cubscout pack has an “open” class meaning Dad’s, siblings, Mom’s or others are welcome to participate.  I helped my boys build their cars and then built mine.  My goal was to design the whole thing in CAD and machine it on my router.  I ended up using the pocket operation to cut a recess in the bottom to accept the weight and a zigzag operation to cut the basic shape.

  1. I’m afraid not. I had a hard drive crash a few years ago and lost a bunch of my project files including this one.

    I can’t believe it’s been almost ten years since I built this.
