How to design a custom Spur Gear (with Equations)

19 12 Beginner
Spur gears are the most common type of gears. They have straight teeth - extruded in one direction - which makes them the easiest to design. Here we'll design a spur gear with equations, where ALL you've got to do is change 2 variables, then ta da... your gear has updated ! Note: The Unit system we'll use is cm.

How to make 3D posts of your models on Facebook

7 0 Beginner
Facebook has just updated their new feature that enables 3D viewing in posts... This feature has been around for some time, but the new update supports the industry-standard glTF 2.0 file format. This allows us to share 3D content on Facebook, whichever the designing software used was. Here I'll show you how to turn your 3D files into GLB, the only extension Facebook reads till now. By the way, GLB file format is a binary form of glTF that includes textures instead of referencing them as external images, so don't worry about the output's quality.

Adidas X18+ Soccer Boot Surfacing

4 0 Intermediate
We are going to learn to model the Adidas X18+ soccer boot using surfacing techniques. These are the cleats worn in 2018 by Luis Suarez and Mohamed Salah, among others. The preferred software for this tutorial is Solidworks but any program with comparable surfacing techniques such as CATIA, Rhinoceros and Alias will work. It is an intermediate course because we are touching on advanced surfacing techniques but only develop a basic model of the shoe that can be developed much further.

How to export a SolidWorks part/assembly as a 3D PDF file

3 0 Beginner
Sending 3D models to others for viewing can be a problem if they don't have a 3D designing software (SolidWorks, Catia, AutoCAD, etc.) or a 3D viewing software (eDrawings, Paint 3D, etc.). So here I'll show you how to export your model (part/assembly) as a 3D PDF file, where you can view your model as any 3D viewing software does. This doesn't just include viewing, but also includes simple rendering, showing/hiding parts, adding extra lighting and a lot more.
