      Here's a few I've done, all with Rhino:







      I just got a copy of Autodesk Inventor, so I'm going to see how I like that. Tried Alibre, didn't like it compared to Rhino.

      Cheers,

        I've been using SW 9.0 on my hp laptop that is dual core intel 2.1 ghz, and onboard shared video/system ram intel graphics. 4gb dual channel ram.

        The onboard video is barely adequate for simple projects.

          This was the first 3d model I ever made with Solidworks. It's a carb plenum box for my Turbo KZ650 project bike. I ended up changing the inlet location to the bottom center when I machined it.

            Here are some quickies of a little lathe my pal Steve S_J_H made. Not really "renders" in my opinion, since I didn't apply materials and surface finishes to the parts.





            I made the ball screws real screws eventually as shown here.

                Nick, I really like the look of that hammer tone finish on the vise and the gyro looks real. It looks like it could be a phot it looks so realistic. Thanks for sharing.

                    We certainly do have some CAD wizards on this board. For me it is almost as much fun to build something in the computer as it is to build it for real. Almost, but not quite. It is really cool to make what I was able to visualize.

                      Perhaps even more fun if you had a physics engine on your computer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physics_engine. I don't have one on my Mac, but I'm ready for it when it becomes affordable and easy enough to use.

                        I do. It's called Sketchy Physics. I am working on a black hole simulation but is is very approximate. Even the highest powered simulations fail miserably near the event horizon. The simulator math blows up as values approach infinity or zero as divide by zero errors cannot be avoided. The required resolution of numerical methods increases asymptotically.

                        You get to shoot a particle of infinitesimal mass into the black hole. By using a massless particle it simplfies the calculations near the limits.

                          I too have Sketchy Physics, but haven't used it yet since all my immediate needs are met with SketchUp. I am amazed that you can model a black hole. Although you do not have to consider collision detection, material elasticity, thermal expansion, etc., you do have the strong curvature of space itself. Very ambitious effort!

                            Not a rendering, but a few pictures of a real product I designed for
                            a customer.

                                Looks like a hand held FLIR unit to me.

                                Come to think of it, it could be an ultrasonic tape measure.
