    I made these using Pro/Desktop 8 which I got for free from school. When I render it, it looks crap so I'll leave it as 'Enhanced Wireframe'. This took me about 2 hours to make and is my first proper model.

    If anyone wants the model file I can host it here or you can email it me. I'll probably post it in IGES but Pro/Desktop can export as a few other filetypes as well.
    I know none of the corners on the model are rounded but I need to do my biology homework now. I'm pretty pleased with what I've got so far though.

    Please comment,

    That looks excellent sinkhead, as far as I can tell v. accurate.

    2 Hours seems a bit steep for a render like that, what spec is your PC?

    Not 2 hours to render, 2 hours to actually make the model.

    Cool model, I had to use pro desktop in tech quite a lot too, it's a nice bit of kit and you can even simulate the movement of mechanisms.

    Did you make the cartridge as one whole object or as seperate pieces and then join them together? Cos if you're gonna be using it for coursework and stuff once you get the hang of pro desktop start designing the pieces as seperate objects and then you can import all the pieces and join them together. You can also align the pieces to an axis and create an exploded diagram which is dead handy for showing how the product is made and helps to pad your coursework out a bit more. ^^

    I made it all as one piece. I'm starting my GCSEs next year so I can imagine I'll be using this a lot more.
    Thanks for the hint!

    Is it possible to convert the 3d files into an animated rotating gif? That would be awesome!

    Having flashbacks of pro engineer right now so I may be a bit incoherent, nice going though.

    Nice. Is it my crappy CRT aspect ratio, or is the perspective in the first image a bit off?

    It does look like the perspective is a bit off on that first images, doesn't it? [​IMG]

    It's not your CRT, no worries [​IMG] We've got high quality LCD's here and even I can see it [​IMG]
