G'day John_SB,

..before I or anyone else, for that matter, John, offers to undertake the task you request, might I enquire as to the issue, if any, you are having with the contents of the *.zip file at the end of link you provide, that makes your request necessary?...

...and why is it not possible for you to create the 'mesh' yourself/...

Hi Jerker
I made those wheels in 3d canvas pro myself just to clear up any confusion about them.
However I made them 3 ft 6 inch but I require auran standard gauge.
I lost my license serial code to 3d canvas pro so I cannot use it to make wheels anymore.
I am going to buy it's successor 3d crafter pro and try to make the wheels in that.
I have removed the zip file of the wheels now.

G'day John_SB,

...there was never any doubt about the authorship of the files, John, I merely wanted to know the reason for the request, given that I knew it was perfectly feasible for you to create wheels in 3ds Max, from scratch. Since you have decided to procure a 'new' license for 3D Crafter Pro, the problem is solved...

Well I forked out $99 dollars for 3d crafter pro.
I made my wheel in it.
Only takes a minute with the included trains tools.

G'day John_SB,

...I agree, the inbuilt Trainz tools in 3D Crafter Pro certainly make such activities so much easier. I would question though, assuming that's a standard Australian wheelset, the thickness of your wheel and tyre. As I see it in both of those images, it appears to be far too thick for my liking. If you're not aware of it, the standard for this measurement is set at a maximum of 3.5" [88mm] and I usually only use 3" [75mm], when creating wheelsets. The diameter of the tread should be 30" (30 1/4, actually) [750mm] and the inside diameter 3" [75mm] less than that. Added to that is the additional 1" [25mm} for the flange...

Hi Jerker
I redone the wheels as you see in the updated pictures above.
Is that better?
