    Dont forget Google Sketchup. I am not able to work with that, but others seem to do wonders...

    So, let me ask, is this where you intended members to post digital images of their upcoming builds? Just wondering.

    Brad,
    I believe this thread was intended for anyone who's using CAD or and of the many various 3D modeling softwares to create a digital "model" and show it here. There is a regular 'Workbench' section for physical models in progress.

    I guess these are in the spirit of the site and this thread in particular. I'll post more views on my gallery. These are renders of a drawing I've done of the Navy's A-1 Triad, it's first ever aircraft. Of course you're only as good as your drawings, and mine are suspect, so I added info from photos of various versions on display. If anyone has really solid drawings, I'd like to see them.

    2. a male lacking in the areas of common courtesy, social custom or grace


    OK... Here's my picture of a CAD. Personally I don't see what this has to do with building models, but I guess I'll play along...

    Dan I will post my first work of a Tire I made in Sketchup here as a start. My goal is my the end of this year I have learned more on sketchup drawing models and as well ordering a Printer DIY Kit (Prusa i3 Rep Rap) and learning the programs (Ponterface) sp? and stl files converting to G code program in (Cura) sp?

    It is a tall order but I can't wait to start the whole process. It has been challenging so far and I'm sure I will be saying a few choice words. It is exciting to envision a part for our models and then turn it into a 3-D print while watching the whole thing take place in front of your eyes.

    Greetings All,

    I started my industrial design career with Solidworks in 2012. It's an amazing program and a good compromise for designers. It is good at designing parts in just about any industry but is not perfect in any, either.

    My interest is in designing parts for laser cutting as well as 3D printing and I have transitioned from working for large companies to working for individual clients.

    So far, most of the work I am doing is in designing and manufacturing parts for the R/C and scale model ship industry but my personal model-building has mostly been with Pocher models, where I've built close to twenty of them over the years.

    To go with the spirit of this thread, here's a typical 3D model of a ship model I designed a couple of years ago. Remember, my work is in Industrial Design. Everything I do is for an end-result that is a manufactured part. I do not design for graphical representation.

    Hello,

    I thought I would add a picture of the current model I am working on. This is a 74" model of a 1930's commuter launch. I know this is a car site but the fellows who got driven in this boat to work every day made their money in the oil business, so very much car related. I still have a few parts to do but, if someone wanted to help me figure out what can be done in the car business, and how to get copyrights on parts, I would be happy to take up the challenge.Digital Workbench Details-port-progress-jpg

    I started a thread over on exotics and supercars, here.

    I’m drawing and resin Digital Workbench Details printing a Ferrari F40 engine from scratch as my first project.




    Here’s where I’m up to in the physical world



    And mocked up with some Pocher parts;



    I’m using fusion 360 and Shapr3D on 12.9” iPad Pro and printing with an Elegoo Mars resin Digital Workbench Details printer, which I am continually impressed with.



    Here is the actual engine I’m trying to recreate.



    I hadn’t touched CAD or resin Digital Workbench Details printers before about 6 weeks ago. It’s a steep learning curve but the results speak for themselves.

    By the way, fusion 360 is free for hobbyists and my printer cost about 」200. There is no reason not to do this IMHO.

    regards

    Nick

    Hi Nortley,

    Sorry, but I have no idea what you mean with that question.

    One of these would combine cars and boats. I worked the engines on this boat for years.
