Talking valve cad, had a bad day took a break......

well since the timing chain decided to break on our grand am (stupid quad cam, pain in the a..) anyways i took a break after smashing all my knuckles and cooled of with some cadding

i decided to cad the modified bushmaster red valves for the virus (and tribal of corse, but some transfer port work has to be done for them to fit) and the dampner, just wanted to show them off.

machinist who gave me the program said for only having it a few weeks and no training im flying along, and even got offered an apprenticeship (sp?) possibly at their shop, hes talkin to the owner

Not bad. What CAD program are you using?

Now you just have to get yourself a good raytracer, dump the solids out as meshes with vertex normals, and start playing with textures:

You may not have seen it because the thumbnail was corrupted, and apparently the vast majority of voters never bothered to look at the full size image (which wasn't corrupted) - I think I got only a single vote

'Eat your vegetables' doesn't show up in blue because I'm an undercover mod.
Actually, I have no idea...

Hey me, ditch the quad 4 and find another car. It will be a lot less painfull in the long run. Life expectancy on those is only 70-80,000 miles. Besides, if you break your knuckles we'll be out one more Tribalsmith.
