any resources / advice for approaching hard surface modeling with a industrial design / mechanical design focus?as in, i want to learn how things are actually engineered, instead of making unrealistic shiny robots.>inb4 lern CADdoesn't have to be 3d specific, anything will do. thanks in advance
look up schematics on google?
>>650358sure but that doesn't tell me anything about why certain decisions were made and how everything fits together
>>650357https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr86CLOiSBAmaybe this will help
>>650357AvE videos on youtube
Study for an Industrial Design or Mechanical Engineering degree?
>>650383i dont have time or money wtf
>>650359You want to learn about actual engineering and mechanics but you don't want to put any time or money into the study of it? What do you really expect?
>>650357>i want to learn how things are actually engineeredLearn what Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing is (GD&T). GD&T calculates basic addition and subtraction within a set of certain rules (ASME Y14.5-2009) applied to the geometry of an object. Just get the book I used in college. It was all I needed to start 3D printing functional parts and assemblies.>Fundamentals of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Third Edition>ISBN-13: 978- 1-1111-2982-8>ISBN-10: 1-1111-2982-7Best place to start that I can think of for you.
>>650493>Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancingthanks. finally a proper answer
>>650493how does this help OP? he specifically asked for resources with hard surface modeling (i.e, not 3d printing). learn to fucking read
>>650524No problem anon>>650525If you're going to learn how to properly model machinery, you're going to need to know how to dimension and tolerance. Whether it's 3D printing or CNC machining you need to know this shit. Don't pretend to know what you're talking about. You obviously don't if you think parts magically will fit together without clearances or datum references you doughnut designing fool.
