Are you ready for some sweet 3D model action? This week, GrabCADder JE Paz takes us on a journey of some of the models uploaded by our fabulous engineering community over the past week. As usual, there are quite a few, and now that we are nearing 20,000 GrabCADers, choosing the 10 most interesting models is getting a little tougher… here it goes!!
Thanks to Dan Novak, we have an awesome Shelf ready Steam Engine. It’s the perfect item to be displayed on any engineer’s desk! Using the design prints of engine creator Elmer Verburg, Dan modeled it in SolidWorks - one of the best ways to learn new skills in complex parts modeling.
How would we get things moving without an engine? Who knows. Fortunately, we have this fine example of a 4 cylinder Boxer Engine by Stan Wile. With outstanding accuracy, you get details of belts, gears and cams. Truely a great addition to our engines database and one of the first AutoCAD engine models on the site.
Need some security for your 3D models? Nobody will touch you or your geometry if you've got this 1911 Commander pointed in their face. Modeled by Joe Young, it comes as a STEP file for anyone to play around with. (Note: Guns are not toys.)
This is our 3th UAV uploaded, they are getting better and better now this one is armed with hellfires, and it has the distinctive US Army decals. This particular UAV is a combination of the MQ-1 Predator and the MQ-9 Reaper modeled in SolidWorks 2010 by Chao Wey.
Finally, we have a Volkswagen Beetle (SolidWorks) on GrabCAD! There is a crowdCAD project to build a VW beetle on the site. This model of the entire car has a lot of detail from handlebars to hubcaps. A great job by David Thomas!
Have you been to the library lately? Be sure to check in and have a look at what people are modeling and be sure to share your thoughts with the person who created the models you like. Oh, and have you heard about the new GrabCAD badges yet? A lot of fun! Until next week.
