    @Jetpainter the cad program you are using is turbo cad when it saves the files is it .dwg and can AutoCAD read it.

    Turbocad uses it's own file type, .tcw but you can also save as a .dwg and several others.

    After I got home from a beautiful day at the flying field, I worked on the Samson plan. I'm starting to get the basic shapes of the formers to look like something.

  6. FYI @Jetpainter @Snoopy1 @Bipeguy03
    I work for Autodesk, and we have a CAD/CAM platform called Fusion 360. It includes 2D and 3D CAD and also includes a CAM package that can program CNC machines. You can download a 30 day trial and, as a hobbyist, you can then register for a free license as a hobbyist. It's a fantastically powerful package for a hobbyist.

    IMG_1749.JPG Ok with all you gentleman talking about Biplanes you made me get interested again. Built a Skybolt many years ago flew it for a season. And then put it away just got frustrated with assembling it at the field loved the plane but not the assemble. Note at the time did not have van just a car. So a week ago cleaned up the plane and put all new radio gear into the plane and changed the wheels to a set of larger Airman wheels. Still need to do a few things and it should be ready for its second maiden flight in a week or so.

    Thanks for the info. Was good at AutoCAD a few years back but can still draw what I need but never had the chance to learn 3D can. You recommend a good book or something that i can follow through one drawing from start to finish to get an idea how to do 3D. Thanks.
