    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.

    I like it Evan. How did you get the hammer marks aound the outside of the housing?

      Those are just over exposed highlights.

        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.

              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.

                  Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

                  It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

                    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.

                      Hey Brian, Is that for lifting up a sheep so I can shear it?

                        This is great, but I also am still in the 2D CAD world and would appreciate more discussion about the software used and the ease of learning and using it. Also, if it is capable of showing dimensions or at least has the ability to somehow measure distances in the finished, 3D sketch.

                          Certainly dimensions can be included in 3D rendered mode. They can be either conventional Dimension Lines or you can be a little more creative and include a measuring device. <grin>
