Just let us know when we can buy it. I want one. That is all.
I haven't even given this much though, I think it can be done easily, just a matter of getting the start up funds to get it cut in a bunch.
I have been making due with my PMP
the biggest question i have is how did you get the scales/profile digitized so nicely? I've been toying with this on other projects with nowhere near the success you appear to have there...
I've had nearly a decade of using illustrator/vector programs for illustration and line work, I scanned the blade, scales and liners to get a 1:1 and then worked from there on. Once you learn spines and how to adjust them while linked to a larger shape, things get really easy.
Man maybe illustrator would be better than solidworks.... Then just export and import into sw for editing... Flatbed scanner?
Btw I work at a machine/fab shop as the lead engineer. If that quote on water jet doesn't work let me know. We have a laser and I'd be happy to get you a quote.
Frikkin lasers, always tryin to steal a water jets thunder..But whatever makes this design a reality and then a threat to my savings is OK with me..
Laser or not...although lasers etch..hmmm...
...and the worst decision of all is....indecision.
Laser etching = different than cutting laser.... We can do very basic etching with it but not like you're talking.
Why not mock one up in aluminum, I know it won't pry worth a dang, but you can have a real representation of the end product at much smaller cost. And you could possibly raffle it off one day when your like all rich and famous, you know, for charity.
Buy me some time!
Having recently just gotten parts cut in titanium from a waterjet and a laser I can say the laser blows the waterjet away in a material that can be cut by both. The edges are cleaner and at 90 degrees and precise hole placement is possible that just isn't with waterjet.
Plus the laser I use is family run so I get a big price break.
WOW. I'm liking this ugly little sucker. LOTS
The clean sharp edges are awesome. I hope this project gets off the ground for sure!
Eric is this still something that might happen?
I know you have to many irons in the fire now.
I just thought I would ask.
ANOTHER great thread-save by billybag!
