  1. I guess it's been long enough since I updated this. I've finished a few more projects since then and now including sets of M113 ramp pulleys, AN/VIC-3 LV2 (for light vehicles like HMMWVs and even Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats) and Mk 13 torpedoes in 1/350 and 1/700. I've started on another one a couple days ago. The most recent project is to turn the VIC-3 model into a new AN/VIC-5(V) TacG2. I am nearly finished with the model and will have it published on my Shapeways shop by then.
  2. Most of those pods should be doable. I'm actually studying Mechanical or Manufacturing engineering currently. But currently not doing anything in the curriculum that involves CAD programs.
  3. I can't believe I forgot to include this in the OP. I can't do fuselage parts. Too complex of shapes to work with the experience in the programs I have. I just installed a new program that should be able to work those shapes but I have no experience in that program yet. Bays and other inserts I could probably do, I just need references and measurements, which I would prefer you guys supply as it saves me a lot of time. I'm a full time student over and above this little 3D designing thing so I have little time to do much else.
  4. Ok. Tail unit in what sense? If it's a single control surface I might, might, be able to pull it off. But I can't do an entire tail section.
  5. Roger. Just to put it out there, I am planning on doing some Bailey Bridge components. And then eventually an entire bridge kit.
  6. So I guess nobody has any ideas or wants anything to be printed?
  7. Hey everybody. I've been doing a bit of 3D CAD work for some time now and I have set up a shop at shapeways. I'm looking for more projects and I'd like to know what you guys here would like to see. If I think I can do it, I'll try it. If you can provide some basic dimensions, detailed measurements or even a simple drawing with dimensions on of what you'd like to see that'd be great and I'd then be more likely to work that project sooner. That said, I am not a professional with this program, Autodesk Inventor, and I do this as a side hobby. There are some things I just can't do, some due to limitations of the program, limitations of 3D printing and some just because I don't have the experience. But if I think I can do it, I will try it. One thing though, I can not do wings or large external fuselage pieces. They are too complex fore to work with. They can be printed but I just can't design them with what I have now. So anyone have any suggestions?
