Ultimate CAD/CAM for DIY/Hobby/Professional and a GREAT Deal

10-30-2014 02:40 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

I’ve been searching for powerful CAD/CAM software that is affordable/free. I finally found it in Fusion 360 from Autodesk. They offer a full featured parametric 3D modeling software with integrated CAM. The integrated CAM makes the CAM parametric to the geometry as well. Currently, there is only a single product in the family which is free for personal/hobby use (yes legally). The full featured version is $300/year now. Come November 8, 2014, they will be offering a standard version ...

Tool Cabinets #2: Tool cabinet has become tool WALL

11-12-2017 03:22 AM by glideking | 10 comments »

Having the 3D controller in my left had and the trackpad in my right has been a game changer. I can now fly through my plans. Thought I would start cutting lumber today but I keep coming up with ideas on my drawings in Sketchup. As the program gets easier for me I am exploring construction and configuration possibilities. The back panels and flipper doors have become bead board. Added crown molding just to learn the “follow me” tool in Sketchup. I did not want the saw till behind ...

Kitty Condo - CAD/CAM primer #1: Kitty Condo - design process

08-17-2012 03:31 PM by Mainiac Matt | 1 comment »

Our 17 year old tabby cat went to the happy hunting grounds last fall, and we decided to console everyone with what else…. a pair of kittens. A brother and sister….. too cute. They soon took to sitting in the window sill near where the bird feeders are hung and the plan was hatched for a kitty condo. I surfed the web with Google images to fill my head with hundreds of ideas, expecting to make the typical carpet lined sono-tube on a pole…. but then came across this des...

Refrigerators, CAD, and Circumcision #2: Cutting the cabinet and installion

10-17-2012 05:24 AM by oldnovice | 2 comments »

Cabinet Circumcision, Virtual and in Reality The entire cabinet is veneer covered particle board and is heavy. There were four screws in the bottom, four screws in the top, three screws in the back, and six staples holding each of the dividers (perhaps a little overkill?). The hardware was not added to the model to keep the model count below 60 as that is a limit for the free version of Creo. The cabinet top and bottom were doweled to the sides with eight dowels in each edge. Figure 8...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #4: Thoughts in SketchUp

11-12-2017 09:35 PM by Bluenote38 | 3 comments »

Temps dropped, cold in the shop so refocused to more indoor activities. Friday (November 10th), of course, was the U.S. Marine Corps 242nd Birthday – Semper Fi Brothers past, present, and future, and may we serve 300 more with honor. Did the Vets day thing too on Saturday served breakfast to a host of Korea and Vietnam Vets and some of the few remaining WWII Vets too. I have to say that I met a guy who was on the USN Nautilus. The first nuclear sub and the first to sail under the pola...

Greene and Greene Book Case/Computer Cabinet.

04-21-2008 08:18 AM by remdam | 8 comments »

I’ve been planing on making a book case for a spare room in my house for awhile now. This contest was great in getting me to focus and finally finish the design. If you’re familiar with the Greene brothers and the Gamble house, you’ll see a lot of the design for this book case comes from the smaller of the two living room book cases.It’s a good size to fit into a guest bedroom. Besides holding books, I also want the piece to hide a small server computer, DSL router, eth...

I’m thinking of using cherry wood. The curve on the head and foot board are inspired by John McAlevey”s bed in Fine Woodworking Magazine #84. What do you think?
