I would like to post my final class project for comments; it contains a bunch of parts files, an assembly, a drawing, and a presentation. I have it in a zipfile, but if you folks prefer I could post in another format.
Many thanks in advance
how big is the zip?
you may not be able to post it
if its still too big...open all the inv files and in the tree drag the red EndOfPart symbol to the top of the tree (this will grey out all your features and make the files MUCH smaller)
Attach it here.
Sorry guys, running short on time and I can't get the file to be the right size, so here's a link
Middle stages of a design for a vertical drill press assembly for the Dremel Flex Shaft attachment (http://www.dremel.com/en-us/Attachments/Pages/Prod
Overall approximate modeling time: 2 days, but this is mostly because a) I started at the beginning of the semester and B) I measured everything out with calipers. Now I would expect all modeling to take 2-4 hours. And, no, I did not do the bearings, alas - got them online.
Assembly: about a day. Again, from what I learned now it should take 1-2 hours.
Questions; aside from the obvious overall quality
a)What is the proper format for the printed sheet? We were not given one.
B) Are my timeframes as stated conducive to paid work in this field?
Many thanks in advance
I am not interested in any 3rd party site.
Why not attach the files here?
Open the larger files and drag the red End of Part marker to the top of the browser hiding all features.
Save the file with the EOP in a rolled up state.
Right click on the file or folder name and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
I suspect you can get good comments from just a couple of the files if you don't want to make the effort to attach the entire assembly here.
BTW the file limit size is much larger over here http://www.augi.com
...and don't need the 2.69 MB Oldversions folder
Are you sitting down.
Before reading on be aware that I don't mince words.
The entire thing is garbage.
Your sketches aren't constrained
Your geometry is incorrect
example - the tap drill size for a 7mm thread is not 7mm - there is no material for threads.
Rather than adding threads as a feature - pick the threaded option in the Hole feature (and create holes as Holes, not extruded circles) and Inventor will give you the tap drill size for the hole.
Post back when you have it fixed up.
You are doing to much work - get lazy.
Inventor will do the work for you - pattern features rather than sketch entities.
Looks messy to me, sorry. When I have some spare time I will be more specific. I have attached here all that should be necessary with the parts saved in a rolled up state.
