High tech expanded view

With the prior success of the sandwich and salad exploded views the gauntlet was tossed and everyone challenged me (including myself) to push my abilities. I reached out to one of my clients, explaining what I was looking to do and asked them if they had a product I could possibly use for this project.
They gracefully obliged, allowing me to take apart a $780 piece of equipment. (I know, right? :? )

Anyhow, here is my first attempt. As with the sandwich and salad, I learned a lot from this exercise. Feel free to ask questions. Enjoy.

That’s a pretty neat way to display a technical device, should come in handy with some of the projects you do. I can’t imagine how this one was done, seems like a lot of stuff to suspend on tiny wires, etc.

and lining them up so perfectly straight - I am thinking only some components were "floating" and they were cut and pasted (at least the thin screws). It is interesting and professional - I bet they liked it. I like it.

Funny you should say that. Here's an email I just received from my contact at the company;

Got to looking at this a little closer this morning and shared it with Roy and Joel. We definitely can find use for this. I like the idea of adding the 3rd axis using the port plugs – but I (actually to Roy’s credit) have an improvement to that! What if you used the actual fittings that are employed when these things are installed? Obviously, I will provide them.

I’m also assuming full res is much clearer. Also, I will be sharing this with the production manager. He may have use for this type of thing as well for assembly instructions. I wish I had more time to play with this type of stuff.

Just a little background info. Bill is an amateur photographer himself. He's asked me several times about some of the workshops I run. He just knows his limits. :)

Not quite the transmission that was suggested, but I hope a worthy substitute. :thumbup:

I've always loved exploded views of mechanical things, it's something about how the parts work together that is so beautiful.

My compliment is that the image looks animated rather than photographed. Well done! S-
