New Sketchup Models - 12th June 2012

Post by Max Metz » Tue Jun 12, 2012 2:09 pm

These are the new Sketchup models, following in the vein of Edwards' latest models posted earlier this month on the Wiki as an aid to building the kit machine.

Each part is labelled with a part number and its source, then dimensioned; this information is accessible though turning on the dimension and part name layers. The dimension and part name label layers are off by default, to use them it is perhaps best practice to isolate the part required, hide the balance of the model, then with the selected part only visible - turn on the dimension and part name layers.

Aside from this each part name has the label information (part and source) included should you wish to delete the part name and dimension layers.

There are 14 models in the series, the last being the complete machine. This last complete Shapeoko model is also available with the dimension and part name layers removed for a smoother viewing and editing experience.

Again if anyone finds a mistake please post the same in this thread so it can be corrected and a new model version uploaded. Once any errors are ironed out the models can be pictured and linked on the Wiki.

Best regards. :D

Good job and thanks!

I'm sure you will be able to assemble your Shape in no time ;) probably with eyes closed :lol:

lol and thanks Markus. :D

After ordering the Shapeoko full kit, a little haunted by the very low price to get into cnc, I decided that the best way to say a big hearty thanks to the Inventor and Community that made it possible was to contribute in some small way. This is it... lol

I have been using Sketchup for some years now for modelling concept designs, a mechanical drawing presented new challenges for me as all my revisions attest. Not usually a nitty gritty sort of chap, more a dreamer, the exercise had its moments and in the process I gained a better appreciation for drafts-persons.

I may do the same with the electronics. Thanks again mate. :D

Onto the point that Markus was making: I found (still find) that modeling assemblies is a very nice way of "practicing" actually doing it in real life. For instance, by the time I received my ORDbot, I had been over the exploded views and STEP files enough times that I already knew what to expect and for the most part, what parts went where.

If nothing else, modeling is a good exercise to familiarize yourself with the assembly process. I'm guessing that because of the tremendous amount of work Max has put into the Sketchup models, assembly will be a breeze for him.

Thanks Edward. :D

You are dead right about modelling stuff as way of familiarising oneself with what is involved in a concept, understanding and removing most of the vagueness is the key to capitalizing on most things. On first inspection the Shapeoko looks like a very simple solution to a complex task, drawing the machine revealed just how refined the solution was and that there are some very complex happenings in its construction that belie its relatively simple appearance.

The fact that it can be done mechanically for $200 plus a small freight charge (even worldwide) is extraordinary.

Now for the forbidding world of electronics, where I seek some solace in the fact that its open source and so I may not find myself so bewildered and lost - or at least will likely share the company of others who are similarly slowly moving forward after feeling uncomfortable initially.

It's blowing a gale here, two days ago it was at cyclone pitch, its looking like a very wet cold and windy winter - a far cry from the 42degC days and steamy nights of a few months back. I have never seen the Swan River so high - for someone who loves the winter its all a thrill. Good night all. :D
