Title: Been sometime between posts for me.
Post by: Steve The Kiwi on August 07, 2015, 08:55:24 PM
It has been sometime between posting for me due to life's other things that she throws at us and it is about time I posted back.

I have been working on a PCB test fixture (bed of nails) which tests the integrity of a populated PCB. The fixture can also be used to program micros on the populated PCB. This simple mount plate is for a disposable interface PCB which has flying leads attached and when the leads go past their use-by, the complete PCB is replaced at minimal cost.

The drawing is very simple, but it shows I have been drawing (with TC 2015 PRO) and I shall later post an image of the PCB complete with stand off's on the mount plate.

For those that do not what I do, I work for and contract design for the electronics industry where I design and build robots, PCB test fixtures and various tooling for the industry. Some items I cannot show, but I can be selective and will dig some images out for you to view. Another post.

thanks for sharing - nice to see a bit of 2D, and, hear what TC users are up to!

Regards Tim

Here is a 3D with stand off's, nuts and disposable PCB.

I am not right into all this rendering stuff, I just want to get the drawing done and then made.

Yes, it's too easy to be side tracked by fancy footwork, in the rendering department, and lose sight of the fact that we, generally, are looking to create some physical artefact,  in the end . . . . rendering shouldn't be the imperative for using TurboCAD, however good it may be.

Just a few thoughts!

Thanks for posting Steve.

I like seeing what people use TC for, 2D or 3D, especially how things are presented for manufacture, the 2D I used to do for work were just very simple new street locations for printing.
