Thank you for the kind words Gordon, I hope all your projects are successful, your perseverance in getting them going is very admirable. (Attkinson)
I had to re-clarify my original post & mention that I do this for free, I may have came across like I was looking to make $.
You folks are a really talented bunch, I'm amazed at what I see, be it amazing projects, helpful tips, 3D printing adventures, or even stories of your past experience. I take all this in, making mental notes of it all.
I've always enjoyed making drawings of engines & mechanisms. I learned more about 3D modeling by copying designs posted here & other sites. It doesn't seem like work when you apply the learning to something you really enjoy.
I know that learning CAD programs can be a real challenge, especially when you would rather be in the shop (I would rather be making chips...), but there are some great projects out there that should be shared & documented, some really interesting designs. There are but a few sources of model engine drawings available any more, at least of new designs (I don't know how Elmer, Rudy, & others did it back then), so I would like to see more & make drawings available. (Of course, new "Designs" are basically variants of the "Old" designs with artistic license in some cases, but hey, oldies are goodies right?)
Again, if you have some sketches of something you are building, or if you just want drawings of something you have completed, files for a crazy part you want to 3D print & are willing to share, I'd like to try to help you out.
