jet Engine
show user profile  npcph
So i am going to start this WIP with a request. I've got a job that i am going to apply for and would like to WOW them with a drawing of a jet engine. I have been trying to find a layout / drawing / diagram of a jet engine that would be complete enough for me to draw in autocad but not so complicated that it would be impossible to reverse engineer. I then want to model in Max add some materials and render out an animation. Then i plan to print the whole thing on my 3d printer. I want to be able to have something that will be similar to either a fighter jet engine or passenger jet engine. Either is fine. I really want to walk in with something that will knock them off their feet.

I've googled lots of stuff for that past few hours but most of what i found is an image but no details, or a section with no complete images. Anyone have a link or source for an engine with multiple drawings, and possible cutaways?

Thanks for any help.

So this is what I'd do if I were you...

Go to grabCad... Get a CAD jetEngine. Produce blueprints off of that for reference and rebuild it...

You'll be reconstructing someone else's work, but no one will be the wiser.

is something like this not detailed enough?

you can use a more detailed image, like this one to compare relative sections and add more detail where u need it

edit - those r like the first images i found in google... and have used them before. not sure what u r looking for, specifically

I think 9k is onto something there.. Nice site btw never seen that before there's tons of cad models for free, some really high quality too, could be a great resource..

Grabcad's cool, It's always my first stop for projects, just in case someone has already done it ;)
