Hi all South Africa Gradcab members. I was hoping to see more people here.
Yeah me 2 that's why i created this group but looks like the people in my country don't use grab cad as much as i hoped.
Excellent design!!!!....But can't figure out the product.
Good to know that there is some people in my country in the same boat as I am. But what is the difference between Grabcab and Fusion 360?
Hi Sechaba. What do you mean?
Grabcad is this site where creators share their cad models.
Fusion 360 is a CAD product created by Autodesk, which you use to create 3d objects.
Good Morning ... Great to see some Souf Efricans here .. are there any Rhino Users and/or jewellery designers on this group?
Far flung South African here. I've been with GrabCAD from the early days and have always found it a great place to pick up a challenge.
I am surprised there aren't more Saffa's around. I've found the challenges to be quite lucrative in pulling down some good ol' USD.
Are you having a go at the space ship then?
I've started one, but struggling to find the time to finish.
Unfortunately I'm on leave with family and will be avoiding the skeef looks from my wife at all costs 😜.
Not this time mate.
I do wish there were more challenges like the used to be.
Im a Mechanical Engineer current in a aluminium/fabrication industry, overseeing the designs & manufacturing of marquees.....
I have been involved in a new design for a double decker marquee, currently the designs for the marquee have been signed off by structural engineers. however the steel structure staircase for the double decker is abit of stumble block for me.
i was wondering of there are any guidelines or mandatory specifications for these types of steel structures. ie, total deflection for the supporting members, height to width ratio.
I have consulted with the go to material, SANS & SABS are very thin with this regards.
I will post the image of the modular design as reference,
Yes there are. When ever I design steel staircases I refer to the South African Steel Construction Handbook A.K.A. The Red Book.
Section 12 will provide you with all the guidelines and design criterion for this.
I hope this is helpful.
Good Day Christo,
i hope and trust this message finds you in good spirit.
I managed to get hold of the "Red Book", had all of the information i was looking for. thanks a million.
Have a lekker further.
Shot man, glad I could be of any help.
Good luck with your projects and have lekker day also.
Hi All Saffers
I've been away from Grabcad for a few years, but I'm back, semi retired and keen to get more involved again. Will keep an eye on this group to see what's cooking....
Hi from Elgin Valley.
My name's Paul.
I'm not a trained draughtsman/engineer/or anything, but I am an engineering graphic artist for the fire protection industry.
Nice to meet you all.
Hier is nog 'n Suid Afrikaner vir jou, ek is mal oor GrabcAD en gebruik die platform om idees te kry vir ontwerpe in die ingeneurs veld, hier is darem puik modeleerders hier my bek hang omtrent permanent oop, gebruik ook baie models as ek n scene wil animate. He onlangs nou n 3D printer ontwerp gebasseer op een van die ontwerpe op die platform.
Ek is in die Aluminium wiel industrie. Gebruik solidworks vir werk maar ook vir my stokperdjie. Ek maak alerhande goed vir 4X4's ens.
Kom kry so af en toe goed hier wat ek dan nie hoef te teken.
Andre here from hartenbos just started with fusion 360 this was my 1ste project drawing wind turbine
