In the little campaign of the amazones there is a paper template to determine the wind direction, so I decided to create a 3D compass. The model can be seen here www.shapeways.com/model/280903/compass.html?gid=ug and the arrow is here www.shapeways.com/model/284689/compass_part_2.html?gid=ug

On the link, you can let it print if you like ( it will be a 3D print), I will order my copy this week and post a picture when I get it.

I will also use it to determine the wind direction for sailing.

Cracking compass. What did you design it with?

Thanx Morkin,

I used Inventor 2010 for the model, as I design machine parts for a living I found it hard to make something "not machined" and without measurements. I have some more ideas for making 3D pieces for my wargames but want to wait for this one to arrive so I know how it will look in real life.

Nice Work.

Do you have already experience with this shop?
I would be very interessted in this, because i've worked a lot with SolidWorks in my study (and yes i can imagine your problems very well to create a model without measures :bigsmile: )

If you want to do something without measures, try Blender. It's a free 3D-Modeling and animating program (no CAD!)
But be warned. I've tried it on my own and it was a mess. Your Way of working is completely different. You must work intuitive, not with a concrete idea. Very difficult in my opinion if you are used to work with technical drawings or something like that.

That's very nice. Any idea what shipping costs are like to the UK?

Thanx for the tip Thor, I installed Blender and watched the first tutorial on their website, it looks like this programm can do almost anything but as with all new programms this complex it will take a lot of practice to master.
