      I/we design, construct, install hydro turbines. Only use for manufacture and assembly rather than renderings. Was just a screen shot to get client approval on the maintenance walkway surrounding the generator.

      Also much easier to get the missus to disagree with renovation ideas before its built

        The hydro model looks good. Do you design the turbines themselves or are they outsourced and you design the installation and other equipment required?
        I did something similar with our kitchen reno, drew it up in SW and then took it into the kitchen places for quotes.

        The pictures i have uploaded so far are not renderings, just "file save as", JPEG. If your computer has a Quadro card and you switch large assembly mode off you can activate realview and it makes it look like that.

          Something i'm about to start building. The laser and machining is being quoted at the moment. Its for a car that has no room for an air to air intercooler. There is a w2a core inside the plenum to cool the charge air. Thanks crack for the inlet model.

              Did you draw it in sheet metal then unfold it for water cutting/laser?

                yeah bud, its modelled using top down approach. Each individual part is brought into the assembly and modelled in reference. The part is modelled as an end result and then the convert to sheet metal feature is used to add the bend radius and flat patterns.

                  No room for an intercooler and you can fit that monster under the bonnet? How low is the sump?

                    Not under the bonnet, through the bonnet

                    From about the underside of the throttle body cable disc up will be poking through the bonnet. It has to happen that way if you want to fit a holden v6 into a KE11 and then turbocharge it. The thing cant ever be registered so it doesnt matter anyway.

                          Non disclosure and/or confidentiality agreement will sort that problem out.

                            If you have any design/drafing work that can be done interstate i can help you out. I would prefer to do more design/drafting and less fabricating... can work later into the night without pissing off the neighbours.


                            Side note; the v6 inlet manifold has been completed and the car has been fired up.

                              im most probably asking in the wrong forum, because of the IP, non-disclosure or not, I would prefer to work with someone not in the automtive industry

                                So it was Xmas holidays, I gave myself a break and thought I would get stuck into doing some 3D drawings myself.

                                Some basic drawings are first.... 1st is an assembly of 8 parts to make the engine mount (which still requires the brace to stop movement front to back) and the other is a exhaust manifold flange to suit both the rb25 and rb26 heads, with lofted port shapes to save the hassle of shaping a piece of steamp pipe and heaps of die grinding.

                                Cheers,
                                Ariel
