Not bad. Made from drawings or just kinda eye-balled it?

measurements to the .001 from a motor that still sits dis-assembled on my desk.

I'll export some pictures the next time I have the program open.

John and I both do this for a living. We've bounced some stuff back and forth on email in the past.

The nasty part is when you have to create the 2D prints to send to the shop. It'* also easy to create stuff in 3D that'* impossible or nearly impossible to machine.

Cool, I have done some cad work but never got to far into 3d modeling. I took a cad class in highschool. I understand the stuff but never intrested me enough to further my education with it.

That made me think of a guy I work with is constantly crashing the CNC machines trying to set stuff up for a job or tweak a current one. The amount of the sparks that fly in those things is amazing given all the coolant that is flowing over it.

I have to make a full set of dimentioned drawings (2D prints basicly) for the motor by monday of next week.

PITA is all I have to say about that!

I'll get better pictures up, but some things like the exhaust manifold and block (which I decided not to draw in full detail due to complexity) would take pages upon pages to make full machine prints.

I really need to re-install AutoCAD '06 and play around with that program.

Mr. Wren What program do you use?

been there done that CNC router hitting the wood screws holding the piece down and literally launching the screw across the room was interesting to say the least

good times in highschool
