      Hello,

      My name is Carlos and Im new to this forum. I am a self taught 3d designer with aspirations to work in the defense industry. I am currently working on building a prototype of a remote weapon station. Im currently working on making cad models of the guns that the rws will use, and will move onto the rws frame once the guns are complete.

      I hope you've got a license for that... ? Otherwise, if you're making a prototype of it, and you've just told the world, some serious (and heavily armed) people will be knocking on your door very loudly, and very soon...:eek:

      I dont think there is any danger with a cad model. I plan on going through all of the proper channels before I have any components manufactured.

      Surely it is not illegal to build models of weapons. Or would it also be illegal to draw a weapon then? Anyway good models, however what are you trying to accomplish with these?

      If you read the original posters comment, he mentions that he is 'building a prototype' - a prototype is a working physical model.... He only later mentions the CAD models.
      And you'd be surprised - if you're a 'person of interest' to the security agencies of some countries, there might well be a law against it...

      Nice CAD models, i hope i can suggest one thing,,,, without coming across as a pain.

      your models include a lot of complex components which require big numbers of production to justify the tooling required.
      a good example is the stand on the second gun, is that a solid ingot machined to that shape, sand casting aluminium, forged? something like that component could be a laser cut profile from mild steel, add a couple bends to give it the channel shape. weld a few bushes on for the pivot points and then electro plate it for a lovely finish. it can still look really well finished and professional with out any tooling.
