Would anyone be interested in a 2D CAd to 3D printed model?

Recommended Posts

I recently drew up a hand powered dredge winch (about 3' X 3' X 2' in full scale), in a 2D CAD program, then went to a 3D model in SketchUp, then to an acceptable STL file to be printed by Shapeways. Would anyone be interested in a thread on the process, and some of the pitfalls along the way?


The winch pushes the limits of their tech, when translated to both 1/32nd and 1/64th scale printed models.


The winch is for my Carrie Price Skipjack model, in another build thread, but I thought that this subject would be more suitable for a wider audience.
