Campervan Interior Layout 3D CAD Model (Interactive)

This is a simple 3D CAD model that we used to validate our interior layout and optimize every cubic inch of the precious available space. Note that we didn’t use the Ford Transit 3D scan; this is a simplified model.

3D CAD files interoperability is still a major issue in 2021. Each CAD software (Solidworks, Catia, Autocad, Sketchup, etc) uses its own native file format and a lot of information is lost when converting to a neutral format. Because of that, you will get .stp file width “dead” solids in it. This means:

  • You cannot modify the solids to customize them.
  • You can measure and use the solids as reference to create your own solids.
  • The download includes the interior layout only (per interactive model above), but does not include the van structure.
  • It’s not 100% accurate. Some adjustments were made (a few inches here and there) during the actual build that might not be reflected in the model.

Nice To Meet You.

About-Us-Narrow

Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then, and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!

  1. Amazing work you guys. I was looking for some 3D scans and this is a great write-up. I am wondering, how useful was the 3D scan for you overall? I have a lot of experience modeling, but wondering how you could utilize all of the curved surfaces on the 3D scan to accurately create things like wall panels. Do you have any insight? Also, where did you find the bike 3D models?

    Thanks!

  2. Bonjour / hello 🙂
    I love this blog; Isabelle & Antoine, you inspire me so much!
    I’m the proud new owner of a Ford Transit Connect XLT that I plan to live in. If anyone has recommendations, Revit models, furniture ideas, etc., please reply! Thank you!

    • you realize that the Transit Connect XLT is an entirely DIFFERENT model than the Transit, with TOTALLY DIFFRENT dimensions, so their plans, models, etc. DO NOT APPLY.

    • The Transit Connect XLT is an entirely different model than the Transit. It’s “apples and oranges”, so their files/dimensions are useless to you.

  3. Hi Antoine and Isabelle,

    Roxanne and René here, from St-Cyrille de Wendover, Quebec. On converti un tout nouveau Transit 350 HD AWD DRW (high roof extended) 2020 et on refait notre virée dans l’ouest Américain au plus tôt (3 semaines-13000 km en 2019) On s’enligne tranquillement pour devenir full timer. Je travaille avec SolidWorks 3D depuis 1995, en conception mécanique, mon métier. Je vais tenter de refaire un modèle 3D complet mais plus détaillé de l’espace cargo du Transit. Je vous tiens au courant. Pas besoin de dire que l’on vous suit depuis un moment…
    Je vais essayer de développer ‘quelque chose’, un système pour faciliter le montage de composantes et accessoires à l’intérieur du camion. A venir…

  4. Hi Antoine.

    I am an architect in Michigan. My wife and I are planning on a ford transit build just like yours. I appreciate your website so much. It is the most detailed and honest presentation out there in this subject. I am going to download your pdf. I was hoping for the 3d but it sounds like you did some creative work to cobble a sprinter van. I would be glad to donate more to get access to you working cad file in 2 d. I will probably build out a model in rhino since that is a software I use more in my industry. I would be glad to share with you and other fans on this page. Let me know if this would be ok with you. Cheers and happy travels. I can’t wait to get my project started now!

    • Hi Kurt, I work in the design field also and I mostly use Revit with some autocad experience. If you can get a floor plan of a Sprinter…i’d be glad to model that in Revit (and export .dwg or .sat files out). I don’t own a Sprinter yet…but I have been watching Youtube videos and reading blogs. It’s very fascinating. I don’t think we will be full time vanlifers since we have 3 young kids. But I like the idea of creating a custom RV for weekend traveling.

      If you can’t find a complete cad file for a Sprinter and have access to laser scanning…that would be another option. If you can get point clouds…I can model it.

      • I have been on the hunt for a 3d model of a Sprinter, if you track one down could I connect with you on it? When I studied architecture, we used autocad, sketchup, Rhino and oddly Maya. I’m a bit rusty now after all those years, but I would love to work on developing the design and sharing ideas.

      • Hey John – I have the CAD files from Ford (well actually STP files) but they assemble best in Fusion360 and once assembled the file size is HUGE (because it contains every bolt, nut, washer etc). I’m trying to turn it into a nice compressed single unintelligent base van file but I’m not experienced enough in Fusion360 to do that.

        Think you can do anything with this to turn it into something a little easier to work with in Revit or sketchup or something?

    • Je sais pas trop d’où le 172 pouces provient… C’est surement possible de faire rentrer un objet de 172 pouces de long, mais en mesurant notre van on trouve qu’il y’a 160 pouce d’espace utilisable pour une conversion. Donc le 160 pouce est ce que l’on a nous-même mesuré dans l’optique d’une conversion.

      Bonne année!

  5. Hey there!
    I just wanted to say thank you for your time and commitment to this website. I came across this site while doing research for my Ram Promaster 3500 conversion that it about to take place and I am so pumped with all the information here. I have spent countless hours reading here. This is so helpful. So grateful. I can’t wait to get started. First project is a rough mock up of the interior with cardboard. The layout is key as we will have 2 adults and a 12 year old. Once we nail down the plan we will do electrical!
