Building an compressor in inventor, need drawings !

Hello!

I'm having a school project now and i was thinking of constructing an compressor, presumably "air",, but yes.
But the problem is that i need 2D drawings for it so i can build it in 3D and then make it move and so on ! 

 It dont haft to be a compressor but i wanna construct something that will take around 80 hours. Something that is abit harder and that has an motion in it. couse it will be more fun to work with something that will have the ability to rotate.

So in my big need of help i'm asking you!

If anyone has either that kind of drawings or/and information and guidness to where i can find it for free, you will make my day!

I could make the drawings myself but dont know any messurements or its parts

Cheers! and i'll wait for you respone !

 

Most schools have a building called "The Library".

In that building there are these archives called "books".

My guess is that you could find one of these books that has what you need.

Hi rickardwahlstrom,

 

At the bottom of this link you'll see an UPDATE section that has a link to some Inventor Wizards projects that you might be interested in.

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

Thank you Curtis for the links!...But i'm still in need of the drawings.

 

Any idéas?

 


There were a whole bunch of complete project drawings at the link at the bottom of the page as Curtis indicated.

Be sure to post back when you have any problems getting the assembly to work.

Looking forward to seeing your results - those projects look fun!

Or just grab your tape measure and calipers and go to either a CAT Rental store and measure away. Tell them what you are doing and they will help you out.

 

Reverse engineering is a great skill to learn, it will help you out down the road. Many times one gets called to build a part from scratch to replace a component that can't easily be acquired.

 

Digital camera and a ruler, place the ruler on the item and take a picture. Bring it into Autocad and scale the picture till the ruler is the proper length, instant drawing.

 

Or as with some of our competitors, their version of R & D stands for: Replicate & Duplicate.

Yes, it is an great idéa !
But does anyone have or know any site where there is 2D drawings, with messures.

Do you really think that manufactures that spend a great deal of money on the design, engineering and building of products are going to readily publish dimensioned drawings on the web for everyone to use?

Go to the library.

Find a book on Technical Drafting.

Pick a project from the book that is within your modeling capabilities.  (forget the compressor)

What's the URL for that? I can't seem to find it on Google.
