Sometime when I get bored...

    This is what a bored Engineer will do. It's missing some final details, some oiling channels need to be addressed and I want to redo my bearing calculations.

    I used to deal with MasterCAM to buzz my creations, but unfortunately I no longer have access to that software. I can't remember what this was. I think it was a heatsink plate for spray cooling.

    I also dabbled in some airfoil design. this was for a project to keep tighter laminar flow across the rear glass of roadcars. Sound theory (especially when combined with Vortex Generators). I believe my final design was a Joukovsky foil that was modified to my needs. It showed promise, but it never got past design. This one was a primitive modeling program. I really want to revisit this concept.

    Anyone else do any modeling, or machining, etc.? I'd like to see what you guys can do.

    I make parts for my car.
    I don't have CAD software so I just make the parts.

    Currently just finished the prototype adapter to put a standard shift knob ball on the Fiesta.
    It will work on the Focus as well.
    Drawings are now complete so CNC programming can be done.

    Next project is the rear camber plates.

    I use CAD all day long at work. Is that modeled in Pro/E?

    SolidWorks is my new best friend!

    We use it to design large valve bodies for water movement, it allows us to keep the weight of the casting to a minimum while meeting the strength requirements.

    Sure is an improvement over 2D flat design
