    Default Show off your CAD renderings

    This is a 2 to 1 ratio 2 speed planetary transmission. I have posted a crude version of it before but this has all the details. It is equipped with poly vee belt pulleys on the outer circumference of the ring gear and planet carrier.

    Software used is SketchUp 7 with rendering in POV-Ray 3.6
    Both programs are freeware.

    Looks very 1998 with the texture wrapping and "foliage".

    Here's a SolidWorks model I made over a year ago while beginning to learn the software for work. It's based off the plans by Lou Blackmore of the Bentley BR2. Lots of small changes made including fixing geometry so it all fits together and changing it to use all commercial bearings instead of the home made ones. It's not quite done yet, still have to do the simple nut and bolt hardware.

    Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it!

    I hope this thread continues. I love seeing the stuff that you guys draw up. Unfortunately I can't contribute as I only do 2D cad. 3D cad is on my list of things I'd like to learn how to do. I've just got to find the time and right program.

    This is the frame for a workbench I been working on. I'm about to give up on Via Cad.



    I really wish I could get the mechanics of ViaCad down as I got a million ideas in my head I'd like to prove out in drawings. Wish I could of had this software when I was younger and before my diet caught up with memory. Seem to forget these commands as fast as I learn them.

    Not a "rendering" but here's the job I'm working on now, that has me in on a sunday



    Nothing I ever design makes it to the "rendering" stage. Simply not needed for what I do. It does fascinate me what can be done with modern cad and graphics packages.
