    OK, I'm a newbie coming to the 3D club.

    I've started playing with sketchup but setting dimensions of shit is seriously fkn retarded.

    Should I pirate a better 3D CAD program or keep trying to fuck with Sketchup?

    Fusion 360 is free for personal or student use and I find it quite good/easy to use but I'm no pro.

    It does struggle sometimes with assemblies with many parts (think thousands of parts) if you do things the wrong way.

    Thanks heaps!

    Got the Fusion360 free for student use from the USA site as suggested. Much easier to use and actually has dimensions.

    Learning curve time.

    This is pretty cool, the whole build is amazing and uses a lot of 3d printed stuff, I think it's beef posted before, but 3d printed dies, filled with resin to make solid, and survived 5t on the press to form some alloy sheet.

    That is fucking awesome.

    So many possibilities making shit that only toolmakers had access to before and putting shit in the hands of us newbies.

    p.s. Aldi have $199 3D printers on sale locally ATM. Hinted to Nopics that it would make a pretty awesome xmas present. bahaha. Might go back and buy one though.

    I started fucking around in Fusion360 like you do. Found a cool lego 2x4 brick tutorial on Youtube and went from there. Maybe 2 days later I had my new fishing skiff prototype roughed out. And super happy with how it went.

    Seriously thought 3D would be much harder to get into than it is, then again, I've been doing 2d layouts in other programs for years so maybe it softened the blow a bit.

    Decided to make a 1/5 scale model mock up on the workbench and if all goes well, I'll start building the real thing.

    If I get the Aldi 3D printer, I'll make an RC version of it or something for tits and pickles.



    Kinda front on.

    So who's the PF go-to-cunt for printing shit? In Sydney preferably.

    Got some parts I need printed out, have a .dxf drawing in 2D as they were originally going to be cut from sheet on a CNC router but it's too expensive to buy the sheet in the required thickness...

    Not anything complicated basically a ring 175mm OD, 160mm ID, but needs to be 30mm thick in plastic.

    No right through them with longer screws, in this case the mounting flange of the new speaker is identical to the original, it just needs to space it out 30mm.

    The 175mm is just slightly too big for the smaller axis on mine ;(

    I printed the ones I needed for my Mazda after the MDF ones the installer used turned to mush from water ingress.

    Much better way of making them.

    I have an idea to make a business out of 3d printing and need to know if anyone has sources of wholesale supply for the consumables preferably in Oz. The small volume suppliers for hobby use won't suit the volume I don't think but being a total newb to this stuff am I barking up the wrong tree? I am involved in an industry where the product assembly is a nightmare due to no standard sizes and I can fix that with a few 3d printers.

    Mini, you can go direct to any number of filament mfrs in China, I imported shitloads of filament from a company called Esun who are now a pretty big player. If you want ABS for your printing I have around 600 x 1Kg rolls that I will sell you dirt cheap.

    Snavy, CAD is like learning a new language, it doesn't come easy. Get a copy of Fusion 360 and use the online tutorials. If you want a fast-track this is probably the best way ATM

    Ive been using fusion 360 from the start, less than 5 hours of use, can make basic shapes but I tend to get frustrated very often. What gets me is I have to watch 20 youtube videos just to make a basic object.

    Try solidworks... follow the fucking tutorials and it ends in an error not allowing you to go to the next step..

    Go back and slowly follow the tutorial word for word button click for button click with the same result... numerous times.

    These are the solidworks tutorials within the program not some youtube wank.

    Highly frustrating.

    Depends what you're trying to do but I find Fusion 360 quite easy to do what I want. It's not a question of just drawing what you think you want. You need to consider how to draw it in the first place. If done properly the parametric stuff can be very powerful for adjusting sizes etc too.

    What simple objects can't you make?

    You should also design with consideration of how it will be printed (use units of nozzle width and layer heights for example)

    Want SolidWorks for free?

    Go here: http://www.solidworks.com/edu-maker-download

    Say you don't have a serial number and use "918MAKER" as the trial code.

    You're welcome...

    I'd forgotten about this, thanks for the offer. Printer is still on the way and the ideas multiply while waiting.
