The 3D models and 2D drawings on this page were developed using various CAD programs, including TurboCAD Pro, Pro/Engineer Wildfire (Creo Elements/Pro), and Autodesk Inventor. Some images show post-render editing. Note: I also have training and experience in AutoCAD 2010-2012.
Here are a few renderings from my 16-week CAD 280 “Capstone” Project class in which I used Autodesk Inventor to model a redesigned version of my Saturn I flying scale model plus launch pad and updated PVC Spider. See also this PDF file (right-hand drawing) for 2D assembly and exploded views which accompanied the project).
I chose to model my Pearl hi hat stand as a final project for my Autodesk Inventor class. Unlike the CAD 280 class, I had to include orthographic views of every part, along with the assembly and exploded views (see right-hand drawing for PDF file).
My winning entry for the 2010 TurboCAD Challenge is a rendering of a Saturn I tail section modeled at full scale. The embossed rivet patterns and panels are done using a wrapped 2D image for a “bump” map. The version shown here corrects a blurry area (at the SA-5 text) caused by an error during the original rendering process. No post-render editing.
