Rhino CAD (and some noobish pictures)

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Sun Sep 10, 2006 2:20 pm

Well I've been wanted a CAD program to draw up designs for my guns. I finally figured out that Rhino has a trial version. I downloaded it and in about 2 mintues I figured out how to save my creations infinitely.

Anyway, I am blown away by this program's complexity. Anyone know a good place for tutorials?

I highly doubt youve neared the programs complexity...

As to the tutorials. Ive designed PB guns being accurate down to every screw and spring. While maintaining actual proportion.

How would I go about bending a cylinder at its midpoint as to make an elbow?

So I made the flashlight from the tutorial and then made this gun on my own. Not great but it beats paint!

if you haven't figured out in the past month, i'd probably just make a circle then make another one perpendicular and lower (these are the openings in the elbow) then draw the outer bend of the elbow and the inner bend, both touching the circles and use the sweep two rails option, if that doesnt work then i'd just play around with many of the other options.

You don't need two rails, just make one along the center (or outer or inner edge) and sweep 1 rail.

The tutorials in the help file are very useful for learning the basics.

draw the 90 degree curve and then pipe it, and do it again with a smaller diameter then use one of those functions that delets where solids overlap and then you have a good elbow without the sockets for glueing
