Default RE: Let's see your CAD RC images here

I am vcery impressed with most of you! ALL of you are better than me.

Is there a good online tutorial on how to do this three D stuff. Or how do you take a 3 view and turn it into a model.

I have TurboCad version 8 which has a tutorial but is is short and I dont want to design a house or lawn mower.

Thanks,
Mike

Here's how I do it. (I don't use TurboCad, but 3D is 3D, more or less... Just "press different buttons".)

what size is your print out? do you have a large printer or a local upsize one. also how many hours did you spend programming it?. I am of the old school, pencil, calculator, paper and lots of erasers, also too old at 79+ too learn, this hunt and peck is my limit, but hasn't stopped my scratch building of giants from small 3 vus. dick

Included in the last update to my 3D software ("Carrara Studio 3" ) were some nice lighting and rendering improvements.
Here's one I did recently.

Default gearbox for Webra 90

Here is a model that was made by myself and another UC Davis student, Nghiem Do. I work in Cobalt 5 and Nghiem works in Solid Works. It's a gearbox we designed for our SAE AeroDesign competition airplane. The gearbox was machined by Nghiem, Marion Fournier and Geoffrey Marmonier.

Specifications:

Webra 90
reduction 4:1
weight is just over a pound.
30-15 prop

We build everything in our student shop. It runs like a clock.

The zombie thread lives!

I'm still pretty new to RC, but I've been playing around with 3D graphics as a hobby since the early '90s. I'd like to combine the two by building a CNC machine and turning my 3d models into RC planes. Here are a couple of recent models I made with the MoI demo. The flying wing is based on the Ho229.

Zombie thread indeed...but cool. Going from concept to flight is a big part of the hobby for me. That gearbox for the SAE project in post #107 is beautiful!

Hi James,

Here are a few 3d cad designs from<< rc plans .com .au>> as you can see we put plans to cad , then off to the laser cutter then to 3d milling router.

We have built all a variety of planes pylon racers , gliders ,scale ,slope,f3b, etc.

We have developed a few Rhino plugin's that help with creation of wing fillets, canopies and fuslage formers.

While I have not been directly associated with the CAD work the two guy's (Andy and Shane) are developing their skills as you can see from the pictures. My role is more construction and scale detail.

The website is http://www.rcplans.com.au/ is a small factory based in Melbourne Australia.
