That looks cool! I want to draw something like that for something I want to build for something i want to do with a certain something for something something. SOMETHING!!!

How do they draw those kinda diagrams? Are there programs that can do that pretty easily?

That looks like it could be made with a CAD program, like SolidWorks or AutoCAD maybe?

A friend of mine does incredible designs and I think it's a CAD program. I could ask.

He also does 3D designs that are just awesome.

What was so impressive about that? One could draw that by hand in about fifteen minutes and scan it if it must be digital.

I have a couple of my friend's designs, about 40MB ea, but they're beautiful, yes the ones Pengwuino shows are very simple.

So, haughty Russian draftsman, why are your drawings any better than the one the short waddling bird linked to?

He does it all, these are actually very large advertising posters, so you can't tell how awesome they are. He creates films of the stuff, not much he can't do. Wish I could show you all of it.

No, he builds the models electronically. I'll ask what the design software is. He was an architect turned construction engineer turned software engineer. He owns a mulit media advertising agency and does these adds.

Nice drawings are great an all, but so what. If you want something really neat, then it will calculate stresses, strains and other important information for you as well.

What is that second pic Ouabache? I'm guessing a weather sensing instrument, land based?
