Hey Guys

I always wanted this tool in my tool box so I figure make my own version of one.
For those who are not familiar with it enclosed is a sample video demonstrating its purpose.

Thanks Ken for the look see., But still trying to find a work around from the facets on the blue object when I extrude it although I had the 3d mode activated in the properties dialog I suspect when i chose the arc tool and then fillet the corners is when I ran into some trouble.J.R.S. had some sample extrusions utilizing different methods some where but yet to  find them.

Looks good W.D.
Did you models the gauge dials or image wrap them. I like to see a close up of one if you feel like posting it.

Nice job WD, I like the gauge faces and how you've dropped a relevant pic into the background.

Thanks guys I must say you have keen eye for detail. I forgot one little adjustment and is to calibrate the dial hand to match calibrating block on the surface plate it was late at night and I was getting tired so I kind of miss some detail now and then. :)

Don they are extrude items on the dial face

Garry the background is something I modify from a existing image done in Paint.net. I try to make the background with of a little theme to make it little interesting to the eye.

Thanks
W.D.

Hey wd.

I guess I've been away from the forum for a while now!
Hope to be on a bit more often now.

Went off to learn a bit of photography.
After doing the Ole Joe's store render(remember that) the theory was to mix my own photo's with TC.
Still haven't really got around to that.

Then learned a bit about image editing using Paint.net and Gimp.
Joined Flickr.

Boss at work saw some of my editing work on flickr. I ended up doing some photography and editing for my works brochure.
I bought Photoshop CS5 Last April so I have spent a lot of time getting my head around that too.

Not a lot of time for messing with TC.
I was recently approached by a small company to do some 3D work so now I'm trying to get back into TC.   ;D ;D
