    Total new-comer to CAD. Which programme to choose.

    I recently started to teach myself this program. The cost per year was just too good to pass up. I don't have solidworks experience, but I do have about 20 years of Autocad experience as a base for all cad bloatware. I have been using Iron cad innovate for about 7 or 8 years now. I find it to...

    What have you been doing today?

    Wow, I had the exact same thing happen to me! No hospital, but a rough 4 weeks. Doc said I should be ok. It took 2 different antibiotics scripts over the course of 25 days.

    CAD /Autocad Help

    I am not a user of this program right now, but I foresee this will be my future solution. 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers | SOLIDWORKS Cost is 100$ per year very affordable in my opinion I currently use ironcad innovate! This is a very expensive program and I have not paid for updates in a...

    Inlet-side power valves on two-strokes.

    Back in the 80's I owned a yz 125 with a ypvs or yamaha power valve system. It was mechanically driven with linkage by rpm as I remember. Never seen one on the intake side, only read valves. The reason I had to look at this thread.

    Moral- On my shop wall for years

    Not on the wall but I often think this! I am skilled enough to take it apart. Patient enough to put it back together. And smart enough to hide the extra parts.

    As an avid reader of this forum I questioned if it was a real working model when I looked at video. From reading posts on this forum for years I just didn't think ignition systems could be scale down this small

    Ford 300 Inline Six

    While they don't support old versions of software with help. I would expect Jacob @ tormach to help get the older version up and running for you. I have also noticed in past they work out upgrade deals if you want to move to current version. Still not cheap I bet. Anyway the current sprutcam...

    Tormach 1100MX opinion

    Couple bullet points from a Tormach user I enjoy drawing models, designs and building them. I wanted a system that looked like its being supported and developed not just a tool "mill" I have a 6 year old series 3 with power draw bar, stand, very well tooled and 4th axis. I also have a New...

    Astro Skeleton clock.

    I recently started to read the complete linked page from start to finish. This project quickly fell into the wow this is crazy complex mechanical engineering art. I was in awe of the detail for any single part of this. As kvom mentioned the amount of engineering and mechanical detail put into...

    PHOTO bucket

    I was shocked when I was notified of this also! IMHO PB is a pretty expensive cloud service. For 15 years I used my Comcast web page account for picture posting. 2 years ago they took those accounts away and over night a couple of forums lost all the picture links. Comcast notified me in...

    Remeber your first engine build--- Boll Aero----

    A quick note on this project. As noted above my health has me in a position that progress is very slow. I have a few other projects to finish up before I can get back to this project. For now they are just pretty metal assemblies setting on shelf.

    Remeber your first engine build--- Boll Aero----

    Still in development! :) Had some bits of material left over so I played with a exhaust design. mostly goofing off making big metal into little metal. Health has me down right now so progress is very slow

    Remeber your first engine build--- Boll Aero----

    Back to giving this project some love. Had a chance to start design and fab of an engine stand for shelf display and also a gas tank mount. Was pleased the proportions come out about right on first design. Not to big and not to small and it complements the original design. Clip of cam...

    Atlas Robot

    That's it! And people build little versions on this forum called steam engines. Now, I didn't think of that! A steam powered generator on my terminator robot. Now days with changing technology and if human health is not important then wireless power transmission would be a decent solution to...

    Atlas Robot

    Great technology but it runs on batteries. Until we design a battery or power supply that has a decent energy density there is not much to worry about.
