Autodesk Vehicle Tracking – Mix and Match Vehicles

Sometimes the vehicle required for your project is not available in the Autodesk Vehicle Tracking Library. Autodesk Vehicle Tracking contains functionality to build vehicles from the ground up. However, it may be simpler to combine two existing vehicles and modify the combined vehicle if needed.

It is simple to do. For the following example lets combine a UK FTA Design Articulated Vehicle Cab with an Abnormal Load Lowboy Trailer to deliver an abnormal load.

1. Open the Vehicle Library Explorer. Navigate to directory and vehicle you need. In this case – British Design Vehicles, FTA 1998, UK FTA Design Articulated Vehicle. Right click on the vehicle. A menu will appear, from the menu chose edit a copy.

3. Navigate to bottom of the Vehicle Library Explorer. The copy of the vehicle will appear under Pool for (Drawing Name) Folder. Expand the vehicle that was copied. Notice it is made up of two components, a tractor (Cab) and trailer. Right click on the Trailer Component and select delete. Notice in the preview panel the Tractor (Cab) Component is left.
