Nirvana posted a topic in - Build logs for subjects built 1901 - Present DayAs I mentioned in the "What did you receive today?" I mentioned about a ship I wanted to have in my yard. This ship is a Swedish first class coastal defence ship, with keel laid in 1899 and launched 14 August 1901, one year later she was commissioned. The name is HSwMS Äran ( Swedish for "Honor") Here is the stats of her: Length: 87.5 m (287 ft 1 in) Beam: 15 m (49 ft 3 in) Draught: 5.3 m (17 ft 5 in) Propulsion: Steam triple-expansion, 2 scre
Starting this topic to explore the FreeCAD program and discuss techniques to be used. Being relatively new to the 3D CAD scene, the approaches will be relatively simple and sometimes wrong and can be improved. The project used as an example is a hull model of the New England fishing schooner Adventure and supporting information from http://schooner-adventure.org/about-us/ and details from Howard Chapelle's "The American Fishing Schooner". At some point photographs of the real schooner will resolve details. The objectives of the project are to understand some techniques
Not sure this has been mentioned here yet. I bought one for $560 AUD, so US would be around $500 or less I reckon (though it IS from China, so not sure how the price will go there for you guys now!...) Initial tests of its capability have been very impressive, the detail is astounding - the attached columns are 40mm high. Downside is that resin is a messy mediun and prints require post processing - washing in Isoproyl alcohol and then curing under UV (ie sitting out on the back deck in the sun for a bit), its also a bit fume-y so using it in the lounge room in front o
As it was the retired period from a 40 years period of tv, graphics, and 3d projects, i said it is time to test a second tool. The first was a laser and CNC tool. Now i bought a 3d printer to make from scratch, and i will show some tests. This are some of the first tests, working for the ship hobby. I also mede some "toys" for my granddaughter, just to see how to work. It seams it is a good tool, and to test parts for ships is excellent. I will show how i build, pictures and explanations soon Cristi
