This PDF can be used alongside the videos for designing an Engine Piston. This basic activity is great for getting started with Cylinders and some positioning. Positioning the Crank Rod in a reliable/ repeatable way can be challenging.Continue reading 3D Design – Piston
This is a placeholder for the Engine Workbench. IT is nowhere near ready for any kin of public release. The Engine workbench was an early attempt to learn the FreeCADs “Part” object.Continue reading Engine Workbench
The Framing Workbench is an experimental workbench. The aim is to add functionality to FreeCAD that will enable the creation of a fully modeled U.S style framed structure. Although most members of a framed structure are simple, each have various considerations and roles to play. These are captured by having members that are named and given custom properties.Continue reading FreeCAD – Framing Workbench
The SketcherShapes Workbench is my attempt to add an “easy” way to insert custom and commonly used shapes. It is an early attempt at a workbench and is not intended for any production or regular use. It is mostly an experiment and a learn to code playground.Continue reading FreeCAD – SketcherShapes Workbench
Modeling the eponymous toy brick in Tinkercad will walk you through many of the necessary fundamentals of 3d Design.
What is BlocksCAD?
BlocksCAD is a Blocks Based 3d Design Coding Tool. Wow that is a mouthfull, let’s break it down a bit. First, what is blocks based.Continue reading BlocksCAD
Here you will find all the models OpenSCAD and related Videos. As with everything I do, this is a work in progress.
Arrows and Dimensions
The Arrows and Dimensions lets the OpenSCAD Coder add dimension lines and arrows to their model.
The Arrays Module allows the OpenSCAD user to easily create various types of arrays from child objects.
The Exploded Assembly helps the OpenSCAD coder to create animations, or just different views of their models.
Here you will find all the models pertaining to the Framing Workbench and Videos. As with everything I do, this is a work in progress.
The Framing Workbench was the groundwork for learning how to make a workbench. It is strongly in the alpha stage and may never go any further. That being said I do get lost in projects and if I get back to this one I man bring it from version 0.1 to 0.2Continue reading FreeCAD – Framing
