I do a little of both. Here's an AR15 machined lower I'm working on having produced:

^ I'm actually machining one right now. I just wish I had more time to work on the lower.

I learned quickly machining paintball part wasn't the a good way to make extra money


This what I'm working on right now.. We are changing some components to make the system easier to make. (this is all i can show im sure you understand)

So it's literally towed behind the fighter jet? Or is it launched/released from the aircraft when the computer recognizes that an incoming missile has passed the first (2?) layers of defense?

Oh, and he isn't lying about not being able to tell you things. I frequently used to talk with him on Xbox live and he wouldn't say a WORD that he wasn't aloud to say. He's good at his job

It's launched after the computer/ecu detects an incoming treat then "towed" so to speak.

Anyone use the rendering software built into solidworks and can point me to where I can find some literature on it? I would love to get better at renders and do some of my company's products but my renders currently look meh. nothing photorealistic.

3D printing has such a huge future. Makes me feel pretty confident about going down a CAD career path since they'll grow together.

We got some prototypes 3D printed in alloy recently, but the result was pretty out of spec and skewed. Still cool to have the option though.

We used to have that option in house at KEE, although via SLS, but never got good results with it.

Some of the processes with aluminium infused nylon or carbon infused nylon give better results.

That sounds interesting. What did the alloy infused nylon look like though?
