    I was getting emails after someone had replied but they stopped so I didn't think anyone had replied! Dave, I forgot the hole in the drawing but it is supposed to be there, whoops! Also, I am not seeing your renderings as they are broken links? Anyone else? The bottom washer is not unnecessary and absolutely has a purpose. I'm just not willing to share that purpose as it will give away my idea. KISS, the snap joint may work, however I would like to be able to take the pieces apart. They need to fit tight but able to be disassembled as well. I had no idea that this would be so hard to make, it's quite discouraging.

    Hi Ed, From what I have seen at my own company (a die casting company), there are opportunities abound. We have engineering project managers that work with customers to either utilize existing dies (modified or not) and to create new ones, as needed. It not only factors in the making of the die, but also the part itself. Corresponding the part design with a customer's end product allows you to be heavily involved not only in product design on the die casting end, but also be a part of the end product design. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I definitely agree Robodog, But as you know engineering design is such a huge area of specialization and I am not sure what particular area of engineering design I want to specialize in. I'm still in my second year and obviously not an engineer yet but all I can make up till now is that I love all aspects of design. I was mainly asking about some dynamic, fulfilling and rewarding areas that in the future I may be happy working in without actually getting bored in my job Thanks Ed

    If I may ask you Erich :) What kind of mechanical engineers do companies like Boeing look for to design their products and what are the aspects that make you a good designer to be employed by such companies? Thanks Ed.

    Thank you for your response Erich! In fact I am involved with the Formula SAE and up till now all is going great :) I have actually talked with a lot of lecturers who told me to stream into Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering to continue and expand in product development and design, rather than streaming Thermofluids and Structural engineering in my last two years (P.S. Both streams will graduate as Mechanical Engineers at the end but with different specializations) and I am actually a bit confused. Therefore, if I may ask, how do you think I shall proceed to continue specializing in engineering design? Is Industrial and Manufacturing engineering a good lead-through to this area or not that much? And if so should I specialize more by doing a masters degree or some postgraduate study in engineering design or a related course? Greatly Appreciate your help, Ed

    Hi, Thank you for your offer. My name is Doru Bucsa, from Oakville, ON Canada. I am confident I can design something amazing, having experience in the telecom industry. Few years ago I designed all the mechanical components for a VOIP video phone, much more complex than a laptop, incorporating touchscreen display, Hi-Fi audio, video camera, internal computer, fingerprint reader, VOIP phone, etc. http://intecom.aastraintecom.com/blustar/ I started working with the customer from their simple hand sketches and I managed all the product development steps until mass production. Based on my industrial designing background, I worked with the customer creating a sleek design, easy to manufacture and service at a very low manufacturing cost. I know mechanical design, CAD at the expert level, industrial design, injection molding, sheet metal and also electronics, which for a mechanical designer is a big asset. Please see my porfolio here: www.EuroCAD.ca

    Mechanical engineers are needed to Design Medical devices like pumps and implants. They also design consumer products like Cell phones, inkjet printers, laser printers. Boeing uses a ton of them to design airplanes. 3d printing is a technology that is riding a wave of hype but it will take the talents of many ME's to make the hype real. Those are just some the fields that will need ME's.

    Industrial Engineering usually focuses on designing the tooling and work flow part of an assembly line or process. They look at things like making sure each station in a line takes the same amount of time so parts advance along the line at an even rate without bottlenecks. Manufacturing engineers focus on how parts are made. They learn the details of manufacturing processes like injection molding or casting or machining. Neither of these specialties are product design. Don't get me wrong, to be a good product development engineer you must know about the capabilities and restrictions of various manufacturing processes. But you don't need to know the process to the depth that a manufacturing engineer does. You need to know enough so you can design a part that meets the needs of your project that can be manufactured easily and cost effectively. If you want to design and develop new things, I am not sure you want to focus on IE and Manufacturing engineering. Getting...

    Hi everyone! I hope someone could guide me in the world of square thread machining and its tolerances/allowances. I got on old piece of pipe I shall find out what type of thread it has (most likely in imperial dim.) to be able to reproduce. Things I can measure: OD: ~136,2mm -> must be 5 3/8" TPI: 4 ID: ~130mm -> must be 5 1/8" Question part 1#:

    I disagree with you on this. I have helped designed the 787, and we have had FoS around 2 or more. The history of FoS wasn't really developed until late 19th Century, so I doubt that the Wright Brothers even thought of it while they were building an airplane. http://anbeal.co.uk/safetyfactorhistory.html
