Solid Models! was created by molitor
Hi all. I'm Clint, I am new, and I have plenty of drafting and design experience. So, on to business. I have downloaded what files i could that accompanied the Quickie Q200 Kits when they cam out. Thankfully, lots of people have realized that the web is a great way to exchange files and that old prints can be scanned and made into digital files. I have collected a few of the digital mediums and have started converting them into solid models. I would be happy to do so for anybody who would like to have their napkins, paper sacks, or beer boxes translated into actual drawings that are universally interchangeable with most CAD software.

Hey Molitor,
Not sure exactly what service you are offering here. Please be more specific.

DXF drawings of the Q2 and Quickie templates are available in the online store here on the site. I also have solidworks renderings of all of the metal parts for the Q2/Q-200.

No need to re-invent the wheel here, but it would be nice to collaborate with someone who has some drafting skills!

Let me know what you had in mind.

Thanks,
Dan Yager

I'm offering to convert personal modifications to models that people can use. I'm sure alot of people have parts that they have modified themselves to overcome problems they have encountered with their individual aircraft.

For Example: An individual may have decided to modify a linkage that was originally installed in their kit in a position that they personally find to be cumbersome. They might tear into their bulkhead or wall to move a bracket to a better location, This can easily be remedied by and offset mounting bracket or a change of orientation. While this easy to do with a sheet metal bracket, the bracket might not be as substantial as the innovator had envisioned. With the 3d model of this part, changes can be easily made and the updated model can be delivered to a Machine Shop to be Milled from a solid piece of stock or precision molded or bent.

I really didn't have an aim with my directiveother than to offer help where I could. I work for a company that Designs and Builds Technology for a variety of industries and 3D models that are infinitely configurable are a valuable asset.

My company's website is www.pcdworks.com if you would like to peruse the documentation on there it may be of interest.

Dan, what solidworks renderings of the metal parts are we talking about? The Fuselage model I have + the wing files you talk of + the metal parts sounds like a nearly complete kit 3D model.

Just curious....

I use AutoCAD inventor which should be able to import your files. If it is possible what I would love to do is convert these files to a file suitable for my 3-D printers. My biggest 3-D printer is 500 x 500 x 300. Following up with the making of various parts what I have been doing is producing a drawing of the relevant part, making a 3-D print of that part out of PLA and then using the lost wax style of process making aluminium parts. For example the biggest item I have made is an intake manifold for a very large V8 racing car. Of course I make all manner of small parts. Should be fun.
