Link will work again, can't guarantee this new upload is exactly the same as the old one (I may have changed text formatting or something).

But the tute covers how to change or make your own template anyway

I should probably note that you can't "save as" in Edge 2D, so always keep a backup copy of your template file safe.

It's really funny.

Think I am going to have to bury myself in this tute to sort stuff out for some CNC joinery. Thanks.

Massive, detailed, brilliant. Hectic. My brain will be hurting I'm sure.

Many thanks and much respect. One of the biggest and best online guides for anything anywhere. Your time and effort is appreciated Bastard Child.

Seems pretty clear to me that Bastard Child is Jessie Pinkman.

Thanks for taking time out from cooking to help us with some sketches dude!

I'm having no luck getting the program to accept the free license (UAC off, Win7 64) so if anyone has come across this would appreciate some advice.

Off to the forums now to solve.

Naw, I'm more like this guy



Anything useful here?

http://www.sevenforums.com/software/...olid-edge.html

I'd start with compatability mode and running as admin on the installer

I tried comp mode with admin rights and it worked...unchecked both and it still worked??

Anyways, looking good now so eager to start messing around in it.

Thanks again for the time you've spent on this for us plebs.

20k views? Man you guys are slow learners... I mean er... thanks for reading and shit, yeah


Here's one of the latest little jobs I've done - fitting a servo motor to a Harley.

Holding it in place (plus some rubber blocks):


Getting a couple of key dimensions down:


Rough mock-up in SolidWorks (3D) to get angles and lengths set (easier than doing it in 2D):


Cardboard Mk1:


Don't worry about water compromising the load bearing of cardboard, Harley guys don't ride in the rain

Refine it for Mk2:


Refine the shape to Mk3 for DXF and laser cutting (SolidWorks can blow goats in some aspects, so I still use simple 2D sketching to refine outlines):


3 chances to not fuck it up @ $5-$8 each in 304 stainless:


Off to the magnabend:


One bend the old fashioned way - hammer and a vice:


And we're done:


Headlamp clips for mounting:


And the final install:

Tidy work, nice. Thanks for the reminder about this tute thread too, I got distracted by other things and never finished working through it after you posted the OP (I know, I know.... ungrateful bastidges ).
Bookmarked it now.

Out of interest, what was the servo for?
Looks rather large to be part of a cruise control system, which is about all I can think of.
But I don't know bikes that well. Or large servos/actuators for that matter, I've only mucked around with dinky RC stuff.

Cruise control servo. That tube represents over a year of my life's work
