So I get this pencil sketch from a guy wanting a model and I just don't where to start. I've tried a 3D sketch and I can't seem to get it right, it always pops with errors. The pains of being a contractor.
Okay, Bernie, I'll be the first to provide counter-snark:
Is this for a university assignment?
Please post what you have tried already.
Not without a pen-sketch of a check payable to "cash".
I love that one!
Payment in advance .
Etch a sketch ???? Came across this heading and thought it might stimulate the missing
This image really fools my eyes
Looking from the side, I see 4 blocks while from the top, it's like 3 blocks
has anyone here seen this???
Christian, it is a joke of course.
It's a classic Escher-esque drawing.
Reminds me of a comic...
A toolmaker is carrying an "impossible fork" into engineering, telling a coworker "He thought the joke was on me when he handed me the prints..."
One place I worked the machining supervisor brought me some parts that had just come out of the machine shop. I was amazed at how they could have been so beautifully and consistently made in that mangled state. He had a box of them. I told him, "Rick, if I had specified that on the print you would have told me you couldn't do it."
Or the guy I sent up to the parts counter twice for the 1 1/2" sch 40 pipe stretcher, part way the third time his mind started churning and he came back..
That reminds me of a story I heard years ago, in which a group of American engineers manufactured a piece of wire that they believed was a smaller diameter than anyone else could accomplish. They sent a piece of it in an envelope to some German colleagues. No note, just the wire, feeling pretty smug. They got it back some time later, again without a note. At first they were puzzled because it looked the same, but they finally thought to check it under a microscope and discovered that a hole had been drilled through it.
I know just as someone posted an image here on the forum before. When I looked at it the first time, I saw a dimple; however, if I looked harder, I saw a bump
I would always tell the new guys to get a left-handed phillips screw driver or left-handed adjustable open-end wrench .
Glenn, I think the Brits would call that "cheeky"!
why don't you send what you have done so far, that's amazing to see such a shape in the 3d vision.
One of my favorites was the "ceramic magnet" - If you get the other departments on board, you can run someone around the facility for a really long time . . .
"Run over to tape and get our ceramic magnet back" . . . "Nope, it just went down to the ovens" . . . "We took it back to forming, because we thought that was where it belonged" . . . "Isn't it back in your department, we sent it down there about 10 minutes ago"
Yeah Todd! My favorites were the Metric Adjustable Wrenches and screwdrivers. LOL!
Meanwhile, I can't remember where I left my box of sparks for the bench grinder!
Thanks for making this post.
It's been one of those days and I needed a good laugh
Glad to hear that!
Rermindes me of my earliest training days in Technical High Scool.
I was a Freshman just starting out in my given trade of "Machine Shop". All the students were making a Center-Punch on a lathe to a provided blueprint.
I turned the diameter of the punch too small and I was rather upset at my error.
I brought the punch, print and micrometer to the teacher Mr. G. and he saw how upset I was. So, what did Mr. G. do to help me? He told me not to worry. Everyone makes mistakes. This one is easy to fix. Go get the Put-On-Tool and we will fix it. Mr.G told me that he loaded the POT to Mr. Sarduchi the science teacher last week and he has not given it back yet. Mr. Sarduchi class room was, of course, as far away from the machine shop as possible.. Mr. G. gave me a hall pass and off I went.
Strangely, Mr. Sarduci had given the POT to the Automotive instructor. Way back just 2 doors down from the machine shop. The auto instructor had, naturally, loaned the POT to the Principal of the school. Half way to the Principal, I figured it out.
They had that figured out and applied it quite often ... lol
Bernie, I found the blueprint for the part you need...
Retrieving data ...
