And i thank Ya for finding that break in the wall, for me !!
Would it be faster, if you stopped making self-supporting parts for the mold ?
I am hoping the 3d printer will encourage my 11 year old to make things. I think this technology and others are going to increase individuals creating things for themselves, a reactionary movement back away from buying everything in throw away form from factories.tahoedirk wrote: ↑Wed Feb 14, 2018 7:43 pmBuilding will be obsolete soon enough.
computers are fascinating and cool and powerful and amazing and there is so much to learn. I feel funny about programing and printing being called building. In this new age it will be the norm. Probably already is for kites, boards and foils.
Our food is grown and raised by robots and computers, bad.
Our buildings are being designed and printed and engineered by our computers. Many tools operate on their own now.
School children carry phones with big batteries next to their hearts which are permanently linked to a internet full of controlled fake information.
I find it a bummer .The craftsman are disappearing.
In medicine, computers, Pharmaceutical and insurance companies call the shots, not the doctors or the patients
I got to breathe some sawdust and get it all over me the other day, It had been a while.
I love making artistic things with my hands, from scratch if possible. I have been a building contractor for 27 years and ,sadly, the art and creativity is nearly lost. Gorgeous
Chinese design tile is barely artistic anymore. t is made as cheap as possible in a factory across the world. Dot matrix, computer printed ceramic tile is common.
Of course, the obvious (good?) part is you can buy hydrofoils and lots of stuff for not much money nowadays
Remember hand written receipts and no message machines or calculators
I hope there will always be people who appreciate handmade goods , even if they cost more and are imperfect
Where is this guy explaining how to draw free-form curves in multiple planes!? I can't find it. I know all this stuff about working on planes, I can't figure out how to do it like on more advanced Cad programs like Nx.opie wrote: ↑Wed Feb 14, 2018 2:00 pmhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5tp4QXciK4&t=7s
This guy helped me break though the wall of frustration with fusion 360.
Once you understand a little you can follow the time line of someone else's wing design to see how they get the curves in different planes.
And there is a free way to get fusion 360, for hobbyists and students.

He doesn't. Check out the example wing design file this other guy put on his website and follow the timeline to see how he did it.
Awesome way to explain it ; just a different way , to achieve the same end !!TomW wrote: ↑Fri Feb 16, 2018 1:56 amDesigning in Cad is an art form.
It still comes down to knowing your tools,
It's a fantastic and amazing period we are living in, a revolutionary change happening.
There's room for sticking to the tried and true tools and combined with new methods.
Just use your creativity and make stuff.
