Is there an open source 3D model that I could use to build a jig off of for a velomobile. Similar to the DF Velomobile or the WAW I see on bicycle-evolution for sale? Just the shell for now, want to play around with creating a jig.

I believe you could use fusion 360 and Slicer to create cross section forms.
I started to try but my home IMac was not new enough.? And I have no expertise with cad programs.
What sort of jig do you want to make?

I was thinking of doing a frame/jig and doing some sort of over layment. Like lightweight wood strips, fiberglass, etc.. over the frame and then remove the frame. Probably build 1/2 at a time.

In the build/tech section is a good description of foam sections with foam overlay.
You could do wood as well.
See Rick Wianeckiís velo build.
