I need to design a piece of machinery for a uni project (I can give details if anyone is interested)Unfortunately, no such class is taught. Given that beyond trying (and failing) to get started a bit on blender to try modding Skyrim, I have 0 experience with 3d modelling whatsoever. Though the subject interests me, I don't want any in-depth knowledge right now, I can't afford the time. What would be the best program for such a feat?Random google image for OP
what kind of machinery are we talking? how complex?
>>621642Pretty simple, I think. Basically a sludge scraper, only instead of rotating on an axis, it travels along a parallelogram and instead of scraping the bottom, it scrapes the sides of vertical panels in the pond (parallelogram)
>>621645>>621642The pond itself would be like a large scale version of this, slightly taller but thousands of times longer and wider. The scraper will have to be almost 30 meters in length
>>621645sorry, dude. i wouldn't know where to start.
>>621649I'm not begging for my work done for me, neither for tips on how to actually design the thing. I'm just asking if there is a more noob-friendly program I could use.That gif comes pretty close to what I had in mind though.
>>621657i'm only shitposting. sketchup is free and is meant to be pretty straightforward.
>>621658I'll check it out, thanks
>>621622Fusion 360. There are many good tutorials on the new for it. It's pretty simple to learn the basica if you spend an evening and focus exclusively on it
