Good Morning everyone,

I'm interested in learning 3-D modeling and would like to model a Wayne 615. I'm wondering if anyone has drawings or schematics that would have dimensions of the individual parts. I have access to a pump but it would be more accurate if someone had exact measurements. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Jason, what program you using? Cool idea to model a whole pump, but maybe start with a small assembly. I've done a lot of solid modeling, but it's really tough to find a decent program without shelling out thousands. To do a gas pump right, be really helpful to have sheet metal modeling features in the program, Solidworks would be nice to have. Your also going to need a lot of measurements to do this right.

Paul,

Yes, I'm using Fusion 360. It's free for personal use and it does have a sheet metal function. My overall plan is to be able to model the whole pump and make it in real life as a scaled down working model. I'm pretty young so most of my friends have no idea how visible pumps work. I would like to use it as a alcohol dispenser on a base with a tank below the pump like a true gas station setup. I already have one but its gravity fed and just not as fun.

Looks like Fusion 360 is an AutoDesk product, I remember trying there 3D program like ten years ago and it sucked but I'm sure its a lot better now. Cool they let people use it for home purposes for free, looks like a year nice.

Ya, it's not too bad. I use Autocad for work so this translate nice for me.
