Hey everyone

Just some projects I did on NX 7.0 at school (taking mechanical engineering) and I thought this would be a good place for them, enjoy!

Great job on the designs. I've designed some paintball guns in Inventor, I love drawing paintball equipment in 3D! Also congrats on the engagement!

I don't play against enemies, I play with my friends.

I'm studying at Red River up in the great white north :P and as far as CAD programs we've learnt autocad, solid edge, and NX. Instead of NX some of my classmates learnt proengineer but I heard it wasnt as goodhas anyone on here used solid works?

I use solid works, there are some really cool cad drawings on simonized.com that might fun to check out.from what i heard, the defense industry uses NX mostly, so i should probably get on that.

Lots of fun in the pbnation Custom CADs section too

I must say you were smart for picking something with such an easy milling patter on the body

shoulda picked a species :P

i never used NX until my current job. always did solidworks before. idk, they are all becoming so similar, its almost just like another set of icons these days to learn.
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

will for sure be checking out the pbn stuff, and yah I find with CAD programs as long as you know the fundamentals of drafting its just a matter of learning the icons. I am noticeing alot of little things that NX has improved on over other programs I have used and I absolutedly love how they do assemblies.

Wow, awesome job man! That's really sweet, pretty neat idea too. It's always more fun whenever you make a school project about stuff you like!
