autocad/sketchup modelling

Unread postAuthor: jackssmirkingrevenge » Mon Jan 12, 2009 1:12 pm

Here's a little something I got from dewey-1 who sadly doesn't post here anymore, it's a blowgun modelled in 3D. I can only post screenshots but I have the sketchup and autocad files, very well made and anyone wishing to avail him/herself of such services should get in touch ;)

Why did he bother putting the gauge port on top when there's no gauge? If you don't have a gauge, you'll have to epoxy it close. That's if you can even get those types of blowguns wherever you are JSR :wink:

I thought they only had them in AUS/NZ.

Anyway...nitpicking over, it looks very nice.

I always wondered why he didn't post here anymore, he went and joined scottcrete, when that fell to crap, he deleted all his posts here. :?

@Mrcrowley... I suppose that this type of blowgun is available (almost) everywhere... well at least anywhere where they use compressed air for filling tires...

on the other hand, those american type blowguns are acctually almost inavailable in europe (UK doesn't count as europe :wink: )

It's a pity that the push button relief valve on the side has very little flow - it would be great for both piloting and filling...

@JSR it's cool but why do you need drawings in CAD? do you plan to machine some parts for your guns ?

Good place to thread an exhaust/filling valve ;)

3D modelling is being used in pretty much everything these days, why not spudguns? Not only is it cool to be able to virtually manipulate your launcher before even taking the hacksaw to PVC but you can more easily foresee problems and experiment with different configurations, for more complex projects it's worth it as far as I'm concerned.
