New Ford and Chevrolet CAD Data Available

New CAD files for eight GM and five Ford vehicles, as well as 2D prints of the starter for the Ford Big Block V8, have been added to SEMA Tech Transfer. The data-sharing program features thousands of files from participating OEMs—Chrysler, Ford, GM and Scion—and is open to SEMA manufacturing members free of charge.

Tech Transfer is a collaboration between SEMA members, OEMs and SEMA staff, and the intent of the program is to minimize or eliminate the necessity for reverse engineering.

New files are added weekly, and the amount of files and data available is fueled by requests made by SEMA manufacturing members. Here are the latest files added this week:
