Model bridge

Hello,             What is the best way to construct a model bridge out of small wooden icecream sticks  The requirements are as follows: 1) the icecream stick dimensions are 2mm deep 10mm wide by 115mm long 2) the bridge has to be 1 metre long and about 20-30cm wide 3) the only materials are the wooden icecream sticks , wood glue and cardboard to form the deck of the bridge. The idea is to construct the bridge so as to be able to hold the most weight.The most weight achieved so far is 450 kg before breaking

3D Modeling Program?

I have some ideas for a project I want to build, but I'd let to sketch it out in 3D form and create a model. Are there programs that can do this? I'd prefer free ones, but I guess I can shell out a few bucks if needed. I basically just need somewhere to put my thoughts into a 3D design so I can view what I'm actually building.

3D Computer Modeling Answered

I would like to make a short video with some basic CGI in it. Basically I just want to overlay a moving 3D model (Possibly a flying creature) onto some prerecorded video.  Can anyone recommend an easy program I can use to make a moving 3D model? I tried Blender but it is too complicated, so if you could recommend a simple editor that would be great.

realistic model water?

I have a model PT boat 109 ( in 1/72 scale) and the propellers are broken. I figure the best way to do this is to just throw the boat in a diorama scene, so it is at the waterline. Can anyone help, because I have no idea how to do the water, and i was wondering if there was any realistic water things that I can make at home, or buy for pretty cheap.

Model sailboat for teaching?

Hello, I work at a Boy Scout Camp over the summer, and one of the merit badges we teach is Small Boat Sailing.  Most of the merit badge goes smoothly, but kids seem to have a hard time with points of sail.  Our plan is to make a small model to put in a tub of water and use a handheld fan to demonstrate the effect the wind will have on the boat at different angles and sail positions.  Any tips on this?  I tried finding models that were accurate, but they were out of our price range.  I want the sail and mast to be able to rotate smoothly, and the mainsheet to be able to be locked and unlocked.

Tongue and mouth model.

I work at a speech training center, and I need to illustrate how to make certain sounds. I thought the best way was to use an adjustable tongue and cheek model. Doesn't have to be a real replica of a tongue, just something to illustrate the tongue and cheek positions for different sounds. Needs to be adjustable. Any ideas? Thanks.

Blender modelling question? Answered

Hello, I have two objects on the screen. When I select one and press G, a large circle appears which alters both objects when I grab; this has not happened before. I know that I must have pressed a shortcut by mistake but I cannot seem to find an answer on the Googles. I've even gone through the process of pressing each key. Could someone tell me how to return to normal.  Thanks EDIT; When I say normal , I mean, I need to get the Grab cursor back to normal( at the moment when I try to use it, it is a big circle, that effects everything it touches, rather than just the object that i want to move).

Anybody want to model "reflux" in the circulatory system? Physical model or computer pipe model!

My wife just had an amazing success when we went down to Newport Beach, California to get venoplasty to relieve many of  her symptoms following a stroke.  http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkzXlmAwZTZfQ01RnN-8Ip5lUz0HrNWzN  We pay for national medical insurance in Canada and this treatment is not covered.  (Even though it clearly works, )   One road block is that an expert doctor here could not find any evidence of reflux in blood flow to or from the brain.  (Some MS patients have damaged valves in their neck veins).  Now, given that each heart beat raises blood pressure from 1.5 psi to 2.3  psi about once every second and that valves are actuated by the blood flowing backwards, I find the "expert doctor's" results impossible to believe.  I am not totally without knowlege in that area either because I made a low pressure airlift pump this year  that has a much higher lift submergence ratio than the normal ones.  (The airlift in a bucket one). I was told that the maximum  lift to submergence in these things was probably not much more that 10 to 1 but I managed to get over 20 to 1 lift to submergence primarly by reducing reflux.    Also, I observed that the effects of this reflux can extend conciderable distances from the "valve" itself and are different in small tubes than in big tubes.  Therefore it is possible (Likely even) that a damaged valve in a persons jugular will have its primary effect in a capallery somewhere in the brain up to a foot away from the damaged valve.  So if someone made this model, I think it is likely that they can contribute to the rapid advancement of medical science!   Brian White

[Help] Custom sounds for model

I've created a resin cast of a gun (raygun) from a video game (Black ops 2) and as part of making it as authentic as possible I would like to have it emit sounds I've pulled from the game at the press of a button, much like a toy gun. I don't know where to go with the idea from here. I would like something that's relatively easy to hear and not too quite and powered by batteries. If someone could point me in the right direction as far as parts I would need to achieve this I would appreciate it.

Canada Amateur Model Rocketry?

I've recently been looking into model rocketry, and was excited at the prospect of making and testing my own small sugar rocket motors. I've done quite a bit of research, and have discovered that many of the oxidizers i would need to use are not available in Canada (ex. KNO3, ammonium nitrate etc...). The only option I discovered was to synthesize KClO3, which I'm not interested in considering how dangerous and unstable it seems to be. I was wondering if any fellow Canadians have found anything that can be used as a substitute/any way for me to pursue this as a hobby without buying motors pre-made, which I'm not interested in. Any help is appreciated.

Model Plane Location dropper

Hi guys I am looking for some help, I am hoping to create a model plane/helicopter which will rotate on an arm (or fly for real). As it rotates (or flies) it will pass a fixed point on the ground and release its cargo onto the ground below. The fixed point must communicate in some way with the plane/helicopter to show that the location can be moved and the planes cargo will drop to the new location. It is a tricky task.  I am also restricted in size - my entire project cannot be larger than 500mm  All helpful ideas would be HUGELY appreciated.

Challenge to good model makers

Hey guys, I have a challenge to the good model makers on Instructables.  I need a small replica airplane for a project I'm working on. The smaller the better, the more detailed the better. Feel free to use whatever knex parts you want: minis, bricks, ect...   I could probably build one myself, but I'll give some of you guys the chance to help me out and work with me. Plus I really don't like building models.  If yours is the best I'll private message you what I'm building, or send you a patch, or whatever you want. I really don't care.  I just want to work with some of the new people here.  Anyone is welcome. Just post a picture and I'll pick which one will work best.  Remember smaller the better. Thanks guys, I'm excited to see what we come up with. Killer~SafeCracker
