Another design that made its way to a tutorial is the attached bench vise. Aside from modeling and rendering I thought it would make a good candidate for a poster illustration, so that too became part of the tutorial. I hope that you enjoy the render and poster, and I hope that you enjoy the tutorial if you decide to pick it up and give it a whirl.

Within the tutorial the viewer will be led through each keystroke to produce all the bench vise components illustrated on the tutorial cover, with the exception of a couple of small fasteners. The viewer will also learn how to create a poster sized illustration using gradient fill and numerous drafting palette objects. Aside from the model and poster creation, the viewer will learn how to apply materials, establish standard and luminance lighting and create a render scene environment. The reader will also learn how to render their model and save it in a high-resolution image format and print their poster to PDF. Additionally, the viewer will be shown some PhotoShop methods to enhance their TurboCAD produced poster.

Within the tutorial the viewer will be led through each keystroke to produce all the Boring Head components illustrated on the tutorial cover, including all of the fastener. The viewer will also learn how to create a Bill of Materials and how to create an exploded view. Additionally, the viewer will learn how to create a drawing sheet with title block and the viewer will be led through the creation of 9 pages of detailed drawings, including the use of viewports, drafting palette objects with section views and fragmental views.  Aside from the model and drawing creation, the viewer will learn how to apply material, establish standard and luminance lighting and create a render scene environment. The reader will also learn how to render their model and save it in a high-resolution image format and print their drawings.

This is a centrifugal pump I designed with the purpose of creating a new TurboCAD tutorial. I was pleased with the design and how well TurboCAD performed making the complex parts, including the main casing, the impeller and the bearing housing. Lots of interesting functions and processes to see within the tutorial. I hope you enjoy the renders and the tutorial should you wish to acquire it.

Within the tutorial the user will be lead through each keystroke to produce all the centrifugal pump components illustrated on the tutorial cover, with the exception of a few downloaded standardized parts. The user will utilize many of the common TurboCAD tools as well as a few TurboCAD tools that may not be so readily apparent to a new user. The user will learn how to create a cut away view. The user will also learn how to insert standard lighting, will learn how to utilize render scene luminance and establish a render scene environment. The reader will also learn how to render their model and save it in a high resolution image format.

Within the tutorial the reader will be lead through each keystroke to produce all the switching tower components utilizing many of the TurboCAD Architectural tools. The reader will also learn how to insert standard lighting, will learn how to utilize render scene luminance and establish a render scene environment. The reader will learn how to render their model and save it in a high resolution image format.

This is a single cylinder engine I designed to be 3D printed and become a crankable demo model. It was lots of fun to design and I thought it would make for good tutorial material. As such, I went ahead and produced a 19 part series demonstrating its construction and presentation.

I initially designed this in SolidWorks due to that program’s terrific constraints and motion study abilities. I then took that info and reworked it from scratch in TurboCAD – which then became the tutorial.
