AutoCAD plans

Postby Chocko6969 » Fri Oct 26, 2018 7:36 pm

Hi all, I'm back here and been reading up plenty of advice, great place with plenty of knowledge being handed out with a smile so thank you all for that.

I've been looking to see if anyone has any written plans, I'm gathering everything to build a bubbler very close to this as I think it's a work of art:
viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3935

What I'm going to do just for my own sake is draw things up on AutoCad (2D) as I go, because I know I'm very methodical and if I have a written plan it will make it easier. Once I get started I'll post and see if there's any glaring errors you can spot!

Has anyone else done plans on AutoCad or similar, I can't find anything in my searches?

Cheers!

Hey chocko
Sorry cant help you with plans done on AutoCad, but this does bring back memories of using this program at school when all we really wanted to do was build shit... not spend hours drawing it. :laughing-rolling:
Here is a spec sheet i followed somewhat with my build. I'm a bit like you in that its good to have bit of a plan on paper.. a reference. :handgestures-thumbupleft:
Good luck with the build!

That's great, but mine will only be line work. I'm pretty efficient at basic autocad so it will be draw it up, check it 3 times and probably post it here!

Heres a 6" im working on using MS publisher - its kinda halfway between using word and photoshop, its much simpler to use than PS but much more limited, but i can resize and move and group/ungroup bits of the assembly easily, spare parts sit off to the side and are easily copied and manipulated
The cool bit is it will let you set a custom paper size, this one is set to B0, easily printable at an officeworks in full size, all the measurements are down to the .1 of a mm

Btw that is mk1 of a ccvm/lm/rlm head.
Mk2 looses the top centering ring, adds a extra sight glass at the back to let the vapor go around the full diameter collection cup and finally the optional 90°bend insert, bottom plate and basket to transform it into a Carter head...
Once your getting funky like that, 2D is very limiting to draw with and why I stopped there, one of the kids has solidworks, but neither of us have tried to drive it much

This is all I'm looking at doing, just a reference to follow is all.

Cheers!
