Title: CAD Drawing of Wind Turbine
Post by: ktriebol on April 02, 2011, 06:54:21 AM
Does anyone know where I can get a CAD 2D outline drawing of a General Electric 1.5 MW 3-blade wind turbine or something similar? I searched the GE web site and also did a general search, but couldn't find anything.

I don't think you will find complete CAD drawings of a "General Electric 1.5 MW 3-blade wind turbine", as there are many competitors in the wind turbine industry.  ;)

But try to Google for "3-blade wind turbine 1.5 MW", also search for images, I found a few good links and a generic line drawing (bitmap) which could be used for a start.

Hope this will help you..?

Thanks for the suggestion, Lars, but images won't help me and I can't seem to find a CAD outline drawing. I was hoping to find a top view that I could use to place in a property drawing to show possible wind turbine locations on the property. I think I will just draw the wind turbine from scratch to the best of my ability.

a quick search in StartingPage ( I never use those other ones) for
General Electric 1.5 MW cad-file
produced this result among others

refine your search with other key words like CAD; drawings; diagram; schematic; etc
