Tech Spam thread - because 1/4" BSP gets 5 hand spans to the jiggawatt

Hello friend,

 

Do you have nerdy thoughts?

 

Nerdy thoughts that you're afraid to tell your freinds in regular spam, for fear of judgement?

 

Sometimes, do you just want to yell MATE YOU CANT USE GRADE 4.6 FOR THAT MATE! MAAAAATTTEEEE.

Welcome!
 

The jug has boiled, it's temperature is 338k which is still less than 0.2 standard deviations from ideal brewing temperature.

So feel free to make an optimal cup of tea within the next 65000 milliseconds.

I've been thinking about importing some of this, and see how it works for some automotive stuffs:

Might make my floor near the exhaust a bit cooler / keep intake manifold from heat soaking perhaps.

 

Possible start of an obsession with various engine bay temperatures, hhhnnnggg

 

HPC on the exhaust manifold would probably be 90% of the battle done with though.

You would be heaps better off putting a K series in your car, all of the little gain you would make by doing that would be offset by the fact you have an extra 150 hp.

Suggesting a K swap for everything is an idiotic one dimensional opinion that doesnt suit anyone without excellent fabrication skills, lots of time and/or $20k to spend.

 

I am not in any of those 3 categories.

Spend $20k on getting fab skills and machines and then do K swap for $4k?

 

Sounds win-win to me hahaha

In other news,

I've been learning how to use solidworks again.

But I'm getting a bit stuck with the UCS

I can figure out how to make a new plane on the face of something, but how do I make a new plane that's say 90 degrees rotated from that?

I'm sure there's a simple answer but it's just a kick in the balls coming from Autocad to Solidworks.

Check the box that says perpendicular rather than parallel?

If I select the round face of a pipe end then there isnt enough info to show what the plane needs to be perpendicular to?

 

Do you use solidworks much?

I used to draw 3d models of buildings for like 7 years, but in Autocad.

 

Any time I've just needed basic flanges etc drawn I find its way quicker in Autocad.

 

But want to learn solidworks to play around with the flow/temperature/whatever kind of stuff.

Yes!

 

But then what stops it from being perpendicular but rotated 90 degrees or whatever?

 

Does it depend on the plane you start in.

Yes but that plane could still rotate 360 degrees while being perpendicular to the end of the pipe, if that's the only thing defining it.

If you have something on the other end of the pipe that you can reference it to then you can do that, but if it is just a pipe then no need.
