I thought I noticed a cad model in the RR sometime back. You might want to try your post in the CAD section of RR.
We use a Tetra and a handfull of Bekums for our PET bottles.
The Uniloy and Atomas are for HDPE.

Putting threads on a bolt in Solidworks uses alot of computing power. A good solid modeler saves this computing power for the parts that need the details, not nuts and bolts.

If you have solidworks, you should know about "3D content central".

It is contacted with the slider on the right side of your screen.

There, you can get an OS 50 I think. Also I have seen Futaba servos, hardware, gears, bearings .....

I have a Solid Works Model
I did not read through all post to see if someone already sent you one. I have a model I started working on. It has the basic dimensions that will get you going. I did not put the carb on it yet.
PM me if you want it.
PS: I looked in 3d content central and could find nothing.

HAVOC,
Nice job on the glow plug model. I wish my "real" plug was as pretty.
I think your "S" dim on the treads is off by .005
Keep it up!

Hey thanks for that, i can work in the carb for you.

In resume:


- Havoc has the Plog.
- You have the OS Model.
- I can work in the carb, and then we can do an assembly!!!!!!

man I wish I had the skills you guys do...

Dumb question... but what type of classes can you take to get the basics of SW? Or did you guys just teach yourself?

Remember when flying inverted that down is up and up is EXPENSIVE!

It's not a hard skill to learn as far as just making the model. The software companies (Autodesk, SolidWorks, etc) want customers so they want to make these things as user friendly as possible. I have not taken a class for it other than a conventional drafting course with pencil and paper. That I think is a good idea so you know and understand the drafting conventions because the pretty models are useless without good working drawings if you intend to actually make the parts. Understanding how the parts will be machined will make or break your model also. It is fairly easy to work the software but it is also easy to make pretty crap that can't be reasonably made or make parts that don't fit due to bad tolerances if you don't understand how it translates to the real world. The glow plug model took less than 30 minutes from the time I started till it was posted and that's with measuring the dimensions. It's just a collection of simple shapes.

I have to say that my first SW model sucked.
It looked great on the screen. Then I exported the file to my LOM machine and it got ugly real quick. Soo off to the STL. Still ugly.
Once I got the hang of it. I use it every day.
SW is liking playing A video game once you learn the commands.

Here's my First CAD drawing using PRO Engineer Wildfire 2. OS91 C-Spec, this is a full working model. Don't ask how long it took me 2 more images in my gallery.

That c-spec looks very nice, do you need a glow plug? I meant to say the plug was done in Inventor not SW. I don't know how well they all talk to each other but autodesk products seem more popular around this area.

Nice
Excellent model. I only blocked mine out, I did not do the "real view". If you spend the time you can get the Solid Works models looking like that too. I love this 3D modeling. I use it at work all the time and it is like playing a video game.
I have these grand plans of designing my own heli some day. Maybe when the my kid has moved out and I am retired from my job!
Have a nice day.

hehe, back then the Nexus 30 was my first and only model. i did it as a final year project. i was taking a design class, but...i was limited to AutoCad, and Solid Edge....and Solid Edge was so new, that the teacher new nearly nothing about it. so i used the Tutorials, and i taught myself how to use it, then i taught my teacher and the rest of the class.

that rotor head took approximatly 12 hours of work, 6 hours dimensioning and sketching each part, and 6 hours modeling to get what you see. i colored everything like that just so you could see each individual part easier.

i dont know if your still in school or not, if you are, look for any engineering design classes. if not, get a copy of solid works, solid edge, or inventor, and use the built in tutorials, or try and find some online. they all work the same really, i'm pretty fluent in all of them. i use solid works the most now....i dont know why, Inventor works just fine, i just tossed a coin one day on what program to stick with and went with it.

all CAD programs will share a common file type called IGES and/or STEP files. so you CAN transfer models from inventor to solidwords for example, it may not be a pretty conversion, but it will work.
