Pull out your pen and put it to paper - only 3 days left!
Familiar with Rotary Kiln systems? Got CAD talent? Or a spare copy of a CAD model? Help these Australian special needs children. Before you ask yourself, "What are you talking about JF?" read this.
My name is Phil and I am a member of our local "men's shed" and we run community assist days every week (2 days a week) with special needs children, I am also associated with 2 schools in our area ..... well ..... the kids see the rotary furnace on the opening page of Autodesk Inventor 2013 whenever I show them Autodesk .... and they LOVE it .... it really makes their day .... does anyone know where I may get a detailed copy to show them and run them through how it was developed.
Any help would be much appreciated by the kids and me ..... THANKS
That's amazing. If anyone can help Phil and the kids, please do. Link goes to the request.
