    I had some pretty cool end centrifugal pumps that I drew at Pump Tech. Alas that PC stayed there.

    I have got a bunch of turbo related models that i created when spare time use to exist.

    this is the manifold design im in the middle of constructing:




    And this is a screenshot from the largest solidworks job i did at my previous work; It was the largest manufacturing job i think they had done in many years. If anybody on here is on or has been on Lite 'n' Easy meals the past 2 years then their food would of gone through this machine.

    Gmh265: what software were they done on?
    It's 2 retention spirals, they each sit inside a blast freezer running at -40 deg. It takes 2 hours from when the product enters to when it leaves, frozen to the centre. I believe they are the largest in the southern hemisphere. They are all made from stainless except for the platform. I spent my fair share of time inside the freezer during commissioning and after that during the warranty period. It's definately not a pleasant temperature to work in.

    A note though, we found at that temp you can weld straight over snow, no need for cleaning it off. There must be enough energy for it to skip the liquid state.

    Software is Delcam Powershape. It is a very powerful surface modeler but lacks any simulation or FEA ability and is pretty soft when working with solids/parametric models. I wish that I had started with solidworks back in the day, but I did not have that option at the time. I have just started to play with solidworks this week actually at home. The CAM side of Delcam (PowerMill) is very good though.

    The detail in the head is great, looks like a NRE head.

    I dont have much experience with solidworks and Surfaces, it does seem quite limited in its ability but you might be able to get plugins for it.
    I have some pics of turbo models that i put together so i can model up my turbo manifolds and check clearances etc before starting work on them.

    I/we design, construct, install hydro turbines. Only use for manufacture and assembly rather than renderings. Was just a screen shot to get client approval on the maintenance walkway surrounding the generator.

    Also much easier to get the missus to disagree with renovation ideas before its built

    The hydro model looks good. Do you design the turbines themselves or are they outsourced and you design the installation and other equipment required?
    I did something similar with our kitchen reno, drew it up in SW and then took it into the kitchen places for quotes.

    The pictures i have uploaded so far are not renderings, just "file save as", JPEG. If your computer has a Quadro card and you switch large assembly mode off you can activate realview and it makes it look like that.

    Something i'm about to start building. The laser and machining is being quoted at the moment. Its for a car that has no room for an air to air intercooler. There is a w2a core inside the plenum to cool the charge air. Thanks crack for the inlet model.

    Did you draw it in sheet metal then unfold it for water cutting/laser?

    yeah bud, its modelled using top down approach. Each individual part is brought into the assembly and modelled in reference. The part is modelled as an end result and then the convert to sheet metal feature is used to add the bend radius and flat patterns.

    No room for an intercooler and you can fit that monster under the bonnet? How low is the sump?

    Not under the bonnet, through the bonnet

    From about the underside of the throttle body cable disc up will be poking through the bonnet. It has to happen that way if you want to fit a holden v6 into a KE11 and then turbocharge it. The thing cant ever be registered so it doesnt matter anyway.

    Non disclosure and/or confidentiality agreement will sort that problem out.

    If you have any design/drafing work that can be done interstate i can help you out. I would prefer to do more design/drafting and less fabricating... can work later into the night without pissing off the neighbours.


    Side note; the v6 inlet manifold has been completed and the car has been fired up.

    Thumbs up

    So it was Xmas holidays, I gave myself a break and thought I would get stuck into doing some 3D drawings myself.

    Some basic drawings are first.... 1st is an assembly of 8 parts to make the engine mount (which still requires the brace to stop movement front to back) and the other is a exhaust manifold flange to suit both the rb25 and rb26 heads, with lofted port shapes to save the hassle of shaping a piece of steamp pipe and heaps of die grinding.

    Cheers,
    Ariel
