So.. we can now attach the following File Types to a Post and they should be able to be downloaded by fellow members.
The Following Files can be Uploaded:
good on you for getting this going! I will dig up some older stuff and put it up. 3D support would be cool, but the size will just get out of control to quickly. IMO if you want to share 3D, zip it into a complete package or export a generic file(STEP or IGES) and save it to your Dropbox, or similar hosting site. Do not use STL for cad purposes, its a faceted model used for 3D printers, it makes a lot of approximations and is useless when dealing with even remotly tight tolerances.
from a wiki
An STL file describes a raw unstructured triangulated surface by the unit normal and vertices (ordered by the right-hand rule) of the triangles using a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system. STL coordinates must be positive numbers, there is no scale information, and the units are arbitrary.[
Also I'm not sure about hosting .ipt? Isnt that the proprietary Inventor part extension? IMO stick to pdf, dxf, and dwg
OK I knew the radius was for forming relief for some reason I was thinking the sides would fold down as well to tie into more of the frame. My bad. Thanks for the great dxf files also. This will save me a lot of time on a rear bumper.
I'm currently working on trying to snag some stuff and add some stuff. Than being said, I'm not able to use the text version. I'm 99% positive it's user error and 1 % sure it's because im using Autocad on a Mac. Regardless, can I get some insight on how to open up these dxf.text files in autocad?
That being said, here are some things i've created.
Could be the way it is imported too. Can you explain what the file structure is when you first download?
ps, I just downloaded via firefox and here is a copy/paste of it:
What browser are you using? Firefox will give you a little more control of how files are imported by keeping them intact. Save the file first, don't click open from the browser dialog, that might eliminate the txt addition.
Post your findings if you can. I am on a Mac right now and our office has six Macs total. I'm the only oddball in the office because of the CNC plasma cutter (Windows XP)
