Sleepless Night time – Gallery – SketchUp Neighborhood

It was too dangerous that I needed to work three jobs to feed a household which pressured me to enter trade and out of public schooling. I didn’t discover out the influence I had on the children till a number of years after I left and a few grads visited me at my new employment. It was form of unhappy. Because it was, in the remainder of my profession I impacted thousdands of individuals via my coaching and improvement actions.

Dave, do you’ve any tutorials that monitor via how your create your stuff?

Sure. It’s a disgrace that educating our youth isn’t valued sufficient tomake it doable for lecturers to make a good dwelling at it. I perceive the frustration of not discovering out what influence you had on the scholars till years afterwards. Then again, I wasn’t in a position to notice the impacts my lecturers had on me till years later, both. I didn’t know in highschool that trig could be of worth till some years later once I was requested to determine what focal size lens a buyer wanted for a slide projector.

I by no means actually figured anybody would care about how I mannequin the machine components so no tutorials. I did a demo exhibiting how I modeled some unidentified object that @TheOnlyAaron modeled in certainly one of his reside streams. I suppose it’s actually the basics of my modeling course of. The important thing being that I mannequin issues in place as a lot as doable. It’s not a tutorial per se however for those who’re bored, you possibly can see that right here:


It’s unhappy that nobody actually tells college students the actual function of education. It isn’t the minutia that one picks up alongside the best way however tips on how to use the varied instruments and the place to use them. In different phrases, one is being taught tips on how to be taught and apply.


Or in different phrases, tips on how to suppose not simply tips on how to do.

Watched that video and already realized a ton! To start with, you had a totally dimensioned drawing. That alone is a superb assist. The most important problem with the turret was the dirth of dimensions. A lot needed to be eyeballed after which all of it needed to match collectively.

However extra importantly, your use of comply with me to do the pulley was so easy. I might have been wrestling with cylinders, push pull and attempting to get these tapers.

“All Weld”? The place is that extension situated?

Please make extra movies. They’re priceless!

Working from dimensioned drawings may be simpler though it relies upon. I’ve seen fairly quite a few them which can be tough to learn and/or require an excessive amount of interpretation.

Modeling in place helps to make the match collectively half work.

It’s Auto Weld by Enroth and is obtainable within the Extension Warehouse.


I’ve acquired one other one I simply uploaded to YT. When it finishes processing I’ll add the hyperlink and you’ll watch it that will help you get to sleep.

Right here you go. It’s practically an hour and I gained’t blame you for those who nod off within the first 5 minutes.


No… I didn’t nod off. I’ve been utilizing SU for years, however realized many issues watching this. Constructing in situ and on the origin is one thing I haven’t been doing however saves a ton of aggravation. I’ve simply begun utilizing cutters to create interescting shapes, however your use is elegant and I’ll emulate. The trim device you employ appears elegant additionally. I didn’t know you might trim one part over the opposite. I at all times ungroup them and it typically leaves a clear up mess. One other level: eradicating the inner faces as you go. I want to try this too. I additionally was impressed with the way you dealt with the helix device and created the threads. All of it seems very simple, and that’s a results of the years of perfecting your workflow. All in all, a wonderful studying expertise.


Doodling with Drape and JPP to created raised letters on a curved floor.


48 years in the past a few my fellow college students and I shot a brief movie concerning the final steam locomotive in each day use by the Finnish railways. I discovered picture negatives taken on the event.


Not a lot a sleepless evening factor though I’ve woken up within the evening desirous about the design.
It’s designed to elevate a inflexible light-weight wheelchair into the aspect door of a van. Principally off the shelf components together with aluminum extrusions. A number of water jet-cut components and a few 3D printed items that are but to be designed.


Taking part in with Vray whereas watching the 3D printer to verify I don’t wind up witha chicken’s nest. Shoulda used extra segments within the spiral.



I discover Subd could be a godsend in conditions like that. Too typically I make one thing and it’s let down by the segments. Isolate the the spiral and subd it, it would make extra geometry than you need, however wonderful for specifics.


That was a fast repair. Thanks for the suggestion.


I just like the extension wire shade of the primary one higher. Plugging instantly right into a wall outlet provides the ability wanted to show the amp as much as 11.

This can be a little machinist jack I mannequin a number of years again.

Determined to attempt printing a 3D mannequin of it. That is the outcome.

Already acquired it form of soiled. The screw threads work very properly proper off the printer.


You should be sleeping higher today. :wink:
It at all times amazes me how properly threads print, after all they’ve t be modeled accurately. Good job!

Properly, typically.

That is the primary time I’ve tried 3D printing threads and I used to be happy with how they turned out. I modeled them primarily based on commonplace thread design as a substitute of constructing them up. I regarded in my espresso cans of {hardware} however didn’t have a nut the correct dimension to attempt on the screw however I’d guess it could match if I did.
