SEAKING9006 to be honest it doesn't surprise me that there charging that much, but if they are tell them you found some one who can make them for half the price and you can probably get a better deal, if I had the time to make them I could offer prices around 10 to 15 though, cheaper if I was making more at a time.

I have never worked in bondo my self but i have heard that it is really easy. if you had a drill press you could probably whip out a really crude one in fifteen minutes.

No matter how rich you become, how famous or powerful, when you die the size of your funeral will still pretty much depend on the weather.

I do not know how well the paint ball vortex block will work, it might break a lot of the balls. I could be wrong so give it a try and let us know how it works

Yeah, drill press makes it a hell of a lot easier, even if it's just a $40 one from Harbor Freight.

Do they have any free full versions of atucad yet?

I take an engineering graphics course and we use Autocad 2007.

It works pretty good.

I'd rather draw up blue prints on any cad program other than god awful paint.

Sorry, Charlie. I would but I can't, I myself don't own autocad. I go to a computer lab up at the college, and I only get about half hour to do my assignments.

But if the teacher is gone, I'll see what I can do :wink:

Anyone know if Autocad files are compatible with Autodesk Inventor? That's what I have access to and have used with great results on a few gun designs. Modelling fittings is a bit of a pain, though.

Orry?! How much did it cost you? I've been looking for a good cad program, but I cant really find anything to suit my needs that runs at a decent price. I thought about buying google sketchup, since I already know how to use it. A lot of the programs that i've thought about getting are either really expensive, or work in some fashion that im really not used to. I've used autodesk before, so I think I might get that.

I'm a mechanical designer with the latest Solidworks, and started designing my cannon using it, and said screw it. All I need is Spudtool! For something so simple its a waste of time to reverse engineer friggin fittings. if you want, go to http://www.3dcontentcentral.com. Many of this stuff has been modeled before. Manufacturer websites often have downloadable 3D models as well. Even McMastercaar has models and 2d drawings for a lot of stuff.
If you want, i'll give you what I have modeled already. I did very detailed work of several DWV fittings and pipe. I can give it to you either in Inventor format by converting it or just give you them in SAT format.
