  • A fully TIG welded steel box section tube chassis
  • Project was full design and manufacture of 3 prototypes and manufacture of 10 production chassis

Design process



UV Design & Engineering designed a steel box section tubing spaceframe chassis using Solidworks 3D CAD to utilise innovative manufacturing processes:

  • All tubes were laser cut including rivet holes for the panels
  • All sheet parts were laser cut and folded by the supplier including the rivet holes

Chassis assembly process



  • Chassis tubes assemble using pegs or slots
  • Minimal jigs and fixtures
  • Body fixing holes in chassis tubes all pre cut and used with the panels for additional jigging purposes
