Got bored with CAD...SenorPedro

So I decided to whip a little high flange old school track hub for the heck of it. Needs some work, but I like where it is going.

Smog Rider would buy one.
I wish I could get bored with CAD. NMTrevo

I just counted. Wired up, that thing would be like the ones on Smog Rider's outrageous cruiser.
Hmm, I thought something looked a little off...SenorPedro

I will have to remedy that now, dang. Just because I can use CAD doesn't mean I can think :)

... That thing could look pretty cool on a radially-laced hub. I wouldn't ride it as a track wheel, but there are people customizing old cruisers that would pay good money for a hub like that.

I happen to be a CAD Designer and a Lego junkie.

This is what happens when I get bored:


I have recreated a few of my lego sets in AutoCAD. I creat each of the pieces and then put them together on the computer just like I did with the real thing.

Current work in progress:

Nice going there, I somehow think that I do not get enough time to be as "bored" with CAD as you do though ;)

Gotta give you props for the legos though, brings back some memories.
