Started making up the plan sheets, and found out that Fusion allows you to put a photo in each sheet (based off the title block for a logo), so I made up a rendering of each sub-assembly to put up in the corner - seen that done on other plans, think it looks good plus gives a good reference for the assembled parts.

Here are a couple interesting views:

Slew/Crowd engines (both the same)


Hoist engine:


Boiler:


Turntable/main boom:

Those are amazing renders, Chris.
I love the background - looks like Tatooine! :)

Going to be a big incentive to try and get the model to look that good! I'm really impressed with the software!

Excellent work on those renderings, and of course the whole solid model. I'm just starting to figure out the CAM side of Fusion.

I've gotten comfortable with the sketching and modelling side, don't have a clue on the mesh model part, never looked at the sheet metal, simulation, or CAM portions. An amazing technology.

Please no long winter in Rochester, it's south of me and if it's long there it's longer here.
I did some computer drafting 30 odd years back (and pencel and ink before that), but what I was doing is kids crayon scripleing compared to what you are doing.

Some of the coldest weather I've ever been in was up in the Toronto area, going to the winter boat show back when you guys had the indoor pool set up for the RC boat display (wow, that was a LONG time ago, think I was in college at the time). The one night the temps got so low the overhead electric trolley lines were snapping, and we had a heck of a time getting the car to run in the morning. You guys don't get quite as much snow as us, but your air gets swarfing COLD!

The only drafting I had done was in the high school class with pencil on paper - this is MUCH more productive!

I'm very impressed with the "photos" you created with the software  :praise2:

At a quick glance the do look like pictures taken with a camera - it's only when you look closer that you realize they are "artificial" .... and I do like the later comment about Star Wars appearance  ^-^

Best wishes and looking forward to another amazing journey of your endeavours, followed quietly from the background with the rest of the Peanuts  ;D

Got a start on the plans, will take a while to finish them.


In the meantime, here is a video that one of the guys took from his submarine last time at the Y pool. The Orca sub is mine.
