    I figured out how to make those pdfs jpegs so you can see them here. There are 5 pics here, so you have to scroll or pick the others from along the bottom. Hope this helps all, -Dino

    I have not posted in years but I've been asked about my design recently by Barry, so I'm going to try to attach my 5 pdf's of my oven plan. they are 8x10 so easy to print and view.
    Cheers, Dino

    Thanks JR,

    My build thread is here, but it went quiet over the Winter as I covered up the build? http://www.fornobravo.com/community/...=1444076022582 It's time to start to look at it again?

    I am not planning on doing to much in CAD apart from rudimentary checking or measures and basic shapes. I had tried for a while to learn Sketchup a while ago, but my other half thought I would have the build done faster in real life with a pen and paper than trying to build it on the computer!

    I will look at a few tutorials, and then come back to you with questions (maybe in your build thread and not Dino's! )

    Mullins, I would be glad to help walk you through modifying my files to match what you are trying to build. You can either post questions for me on your build thread if you have one, on the thread I linked you too, or I could start a thread on doing oven related cad help. Let me know if you want assistance and what your preference would be. For the basic 3D work needed to size the oven and place the arch, you don't need to be too fluent in Freecad. You can take some really fine measurements that will help you with your build. If you want to make really cool 3D solids however, it will take some work.

    Thanks JR,
    For some reason I was having a tunnel vision moment and was only thinking and visualizing in 2D and not 3D. I could understand how the width of the circle at a certain point was a function to the distance from back wall or center point, and depending on that distance I could potentially "breach" my circle, but completely forgot about the height and the dome also…
    I downloaded your zip file, but will have to look into how I open it as I have a MAC and it appears to be more complicated on MAC than PC and is not as well supported… according to the FreeCadweb website "We rely on very few people to help building Mac OSX packages, so it doesn't get updated as often as the other platforms. The version available on this site might be slightly outdated. (To compile the most up-to-date version from source see CompileOnMac)"….

    Do you have it in pdf, or can you print to pdf?

    thanks,

    mullins


    Update:
    OK, I was able to download the most recent version of FreeCAD for the Mac (version 0.15). It seems more newbie/user friendly. I was able to load in JR's sample and play around with it. I will have to look at a few tutorials as it is blind messing around so far, but it certainly has potential!

    Thanks!

    Mullins, if Dino is too busy, or if you want to play with some CAD yourself, check out the files in the link below . The distance from the back wall (or centerline as I calculated mine) is mostly a function of door height (distance needs to be right so you can make a round dome) followed by how much arch you want to have protruding from the dome, which ties in with the door width. I know this works for a semi-circular arch, not sure if you build a different type though.

    Hi Dino,

    Great build and fantastic looking food!

    I have a question on a CAD mock-up you did for Gene for a 36 inch oven to see if Gene could fit it on his stand... I am building a 36 inch myself... All measurements are in the CAD (although I will probably go for a smaller doorway), except how far from back wall to inside of the inner arch.
    I've tried to figure out what it should be based on the CAD (and mine will be different anyway if I make the door smaller, it would be further away from the back wall)

    Thanks for any assistance!
    Eoin

    Lasagna looks amazing! Do you remember what type of wood you used?

    You are your own worse critic!

    Hi Darin,
    I try for 200 deg, but it's almost always a bit hotter, closer to 300, but then I ALWAYS have a large shallow tray/pan of hot water I slide in there for moisture and to bring the temp down closer to 250. 6 hours sounds right at 200 deg but my ribs and even this duck was done in about 4 hours.
    I've been using mostly cherry wood and apricot wood from winter trimming a couple backyard trees and it's enough to make to really smokey.

    I started friday with my cheese wrapped grape leaves on the Tuscan Grill. I posted the pics here:
    http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f31/...wfo-17838.html

    Then we made an heirloom tomato galette (open face tart) that I posted pics here:
    http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f25/...wfo-17917.html

    We had beer can chix with it, so that's nothing new but was delicous.

    Then the next day we smoked 3 racks of ribs and 4 duck legs. We try to barely get the ribs done, then cut into groups of 4 and freeze them and whip them out and re-heat as appatizers for company or just fun thru the summer months.


    and the duck legs


    I know this is a "building" thread but thought I'd show these pics and links to show how fun it is to use the oven.
    Hey Dino,
    What kind of temp do you use for smoking the ribs and duck?

    Can you give us a short tutorial to follow?
    I slow cooked some beef the other night and cooked it overnight at about 200 degrees.

    It turned out great and was on for about 6 hours.
    Just curious what you do with those..

    Re: Dino's 42" Pizza Oven Starts

    I got it right after I finished the oven and I just don't remember where I got that smoking rack. A few have asked me and I wish I could remember if it was a gift from a relative or I ordered it. Sorry, but I'll post it if I come across it.

    Where did you get your two layer cooking racks from? Looks very useful.

    Hi JT,
    I used the high-temp mix I used for the dome since I had all the portland/lime/fireclay dust/fine sand already on hand.

    I have not followed any post about it but I would imagine others have asked that: ?may I switch to standard mortar mix for the transition and outer arches?

    I would think that with a heat gap, it would be fine to use regular mortar, however, you still have very hot smoke going up the chimney. So, I guess I really don't know. You might ask John at http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f8/octoforno-7122.html since he has a fire break (I don't) or start a thread.

    PS: thanks about the "good posts"
