Re: Building an compressor in inventor, need drawings !

10-09-2012 12:39 PM in reply to: Curtis_Waguespack

Thank you Curtis for the links! I did add your page in my favorite list and will take a bigger look at it when i have time, i looked and found trainings drawings and tips about the program.

I have gone several courses so well i'm an amature but i can build everything from an 2D drawing and figure out how to use "mates" and so on so it will get an motion.

But i'm still in need of the drawings.

If i cant find any i'm thinking of making my own made from "unmeassured" 3D models, and presume what it could be like by how it looks... 

I was thinking that in that case this might be a start, http://grabcad.com/library/engine-v-twin-linear

Any idéas?

Hi rickardwahlstrom,

 

The link I provided earlier has a link to the Inventor Wizards page that includes several *.zip file that contain fully detailed and dimensioned 2D drawings for several steam engine assemblies, very similar to the one at grabcad.

 

I've even included a direct link to the English translated page of the Inventor Wizards page, on my page.

 

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

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

Wow man, That is pretty much all that i needed! And that is actually the real first drawing i stumbled upon today after hours of searching... i'll look into each one of them and see wich one who fits best for my project! And i'm pretty sure i will use one of them!
Thank you so much Curtis for your help, it's realy nice of you!

And if i choose one of them and stumble on any problem i hope that it will be okey if i could ask you for help once again. 

But still, Thanks for the help! :smileyhappy:

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